Imperial Palace in Bressanone

Atmospheric courtyard and location of the Diocesan museum

The courtyard of the Imperial Palace with its Renaissance loggias in the South and North, with closed Baroque façades in the East and West, the old palace gate and the Baroque marble door and the tower of the Imperial church, is one of the most atmospheric castle courtyards in South Tyrol. The Diocesan museum housed in the Imperial Palace has 70 exhibition rooms which showcase the art collection ranging from valuable medieval sculptures and panels to modern art, the Bressanone Cathedral treasures, the Imperial wing with the majolica stoves, historic furniture and Vienna china, the Bishop’s wing and the Baroque chapel. On the ground floor visitors can see a diorama of the Christian year with 5000 figures, which was ordered by Prince Bishop Karl Franz of Lodron for his rooms in the Imperial Palace. The nativity sets collection is completed by Christmas nativities from Bressanone, Tyrol, Naples and Sicily.
