Saint Notburga Museum

The Saint Notburga Museum in Eben am Achensee is the only museum of Austria which is dedicated to a Saint.

The Saint Notburga Museum (Notburga-Museum) on the shores of Lake Achensee tells about the centuries-long veneration of St. Notburga of Rattenberg. It is located in the presbytery of the St. Notburga Parish Church, one of the most beautiful Baroque buildings of Tyrol. When the church was sanctified in the middle of the 18th century, the newly clothed skeleton of the Saint was positioned at the high altar where it can still be admired today.

Through the centuries, the veneration of St. Notburga brought plenty of pilgrims to Eben. But who was the Saint? Born in 1265 AD as a hatter's daughter in Rattenberg, a part of Bavaria then, Notburga cared all her life for the poor, disabled and ill people. She was a maid at Henry I of Rottenburg who allowed her to distribute leftovers to the people. When this was forbidden under Henry II, she was fasting for one day a week, and distributed her food...

Today, she is a venerated national Saint in Tyrol and South Bavaria, and the patron saint of the maids and of farming. In six rooms, the oldest documents about the Saint, objects, Baroque paintings, Rococo sculptures, and a procession banner are exhibited. New exhibits have been added in 2022, the museum can also be reached by Lake Achensee Railway, which stops at Eben.
