Handwritten documents of Andreas Hofer and Habsburg emperors can be viewed in Laces in the Val Venosta valley
On the church square in Laces (Latsch) stands the historic inn "Zum Roten Adler", which also houses a private collection by Hermann Pegger. The exhibits are all from the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the freedom fights of 1809 - a journey back in time to those distant times of the Habsburg Monarchy and the Tyrolean peasant uprisings.
There are several original writings by Habsburg emperors, and original letters by Andreas Hofer, Josef Speckbacher and Father Joachim Haspinger from the time of Napoleon and the Tyrolean freedom fights with the legendary battles at the Bergisel in Innsbruck to admire.
By the way: 20 km away, in Parcines, there is another Habsburg Museum, the Royal and Imperial Museum Bad Egart. And how to reach the Habsburg Museum in Laces - "Habsburger Museum" in German, "Museo Asburgico" in Italian? The "Zum Roten Adler" inn is located on the central church square, there are parking spaces and a bus stop nearby. The Val Venosta Cycle Path from Merano towards the Resia Pass also runs through the village centre of Laces.
