“Kastelruther Spatzen” folk music museum

In Castelrotto, home of the “Kastelruther Spatzen”, there is a Spatzen Shop with a unique Spatzen Museum

They have decades of success in folk music to show: the "Kastelruther Spatzen", who were founded in 1975. With hits like "Tränen passen nicht zu dir" and "Schatten überm Rosenhof", the band around frontman Norbert Rier entered the hearts of the entire German-speaking folk music fan community. The awards followed blow upon blow and today fill an entire museum: It is located in the basement of the fan shop, in the Via Dolomiti road 21 in Castelrotto village.

Souvenirs and trophies, records and awards, the honorary citizenship of Castelrotto and the diamond trophy for 15 million records sold in 2008 adorn the rooms. The so-called Spatzen Museum was opened by the trumpeter of the group, Walter Mauroner, in 2005, as the former exhibition room had become too small. Each of the seven rooms has been dedicated to a specific theme, including "The Beginning", "Fire in the Eternal Ice" and "The 100th Gold Record".

And how to reach the "Kastelruther Spatzen" folk music museum? The shop in the centre of Castelrotto is well signposted - the museum is located in its basement. Castelrotto is easy to reach by public transport, parking facilities are in the vicinity. For the big Kastelruther Spatzen Festival and Open Air, the shop and the museum usually stay open through lunch.
