Informationen zu Stabinger Crib Collection
This collection consists of four panorama cribs with a classical-oriental character along with numerous Tyrolean cribs. A great fan of cribs, Anton Stabinger, a baker and innkeeper in Sexten, began building oriental crèches after a pilgrimage in 1906. He brought back sketches of holy sites with him from the Holy Land and built the crèches to scale. The splendid crib figures stem from the renowned Tyrolean woodcutters of the day (Seisl, Gwercher, Speckbacher, Spiegl, and Tschutschenthaler). After years of work on a minute scale, his grandson of the same name has restored the cribs and made them accessible to the public in the Hotel Mondschein.
In Sexten a magnificent collection of nativity scenes with hand-carved figures is on display.
