Nativity scenes in Christkindl

Mechanical nativity scene in the Christkindl parsonage
Almost 300 figures carved from linden wood move through a biblical landscape rich in historical detail by means of a unique mechanism using bicycle chains, shafts and gear wheels.
built by Karl Klauda (1855 - 1939)

Pöttmesser nativity scene in the Christkindl parsonage
one of the world’s largest nativity scenes This oriental landscape nativity scene with a floor space of 58 m2 provides sufficient room to accommodate the 778 up to 30 cm high, superbly carved and dressed figures of the South Tyrolese Ferdinand Pöttmesser (1895 - 1977). The landscape mountain was added with loving care at a later date by Josef Seidl, a Steyr citizen.
