Nativity scenes in Christkindl

In the Christkindl parish house two nativity scene rarities are on display.

Mechanical nativity scene in the Christkindl parsonage
300 carved linden wood figurines, driven by a unique mechanical system, move through the biblical landscape of the Mechanical Nativity scene built by Karl Klauda (1855 - 1939).

Pöttmesser nativity scene in the Christkindl parsonage
The Pöttmesser Nativity Scene, with its 58 square metres is one of the world’s largest nativity scenes and provides sufficient room to accommodate the 700 figurines 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.
