Regional Museum Lienz

The museum of the East Tyrolean city is located in the venerable walls of Bruck Castle (13th century).

Bruck Castle, impressive residence castle of the Counts of Gorizia, is owned by the City of Lienz and houses the Regional Museum Lienz. Furthermore, the inner courtyard is often venue for theatre performances and concerts, such as the well-known event “Kultursommer Schloss Bruck” (Cultural Summer on Bruck Castle).

The Regional Museum Lienz houses the Egger-Lienz-Gallery. Together with the collections of the Leopold Museum in Vienna, the State of Tyrol and the Tyrolean State Museum Ferdinandeum in Innsbruck, it is one of the biggest public collections of the East Tyrolean expressionist Albin Egger-Lienz (1868-1926). His paintings illustrate art between the poles of modernity, abstraction and regional art. Besides Bruck Castle also shows contemporary art in the new adapted western wing, and the younger past of the town Lienz in the donjon - in collaboration with the “Tyrolean Archive of Photography” (TAP).

However, beside the art collection the museum presents three additional thematic areas. The archaeological collection shows prehistoric and protohistoric findings from the area and original findings from the Roman city Aguntum near Lienz. In addition, there are the folkloristic collection with East Tyrolean objects such as traditional costumes and looms, as well as the nature collection with minerals and various animal preparations. From the parking space at the foot of the castle hill, a path takes you through the castle park to the museum. By the way: The museum was awarded the Austrian Museum Certification in 2006.
