The cultural centre in San Michele Appiano is housed in one of the historic residences of the castle region
Lanserhaus is the name of the manor house in the centre of San Michele Appiano (St. Michael Eppan) that houses one of South Tyrol's most important art galleries. It is actually an ensemble comprising several buildings that was restored and converted into a cultural centre about two decades ago. Art exhibitions and seminars are held in the various venerable rooms. In the Raiffeisen Forum, the adapted farm building in the inner courtyard, there are also two large halls with state-of-the-art technical equipment and a Steinway grand piano for wonderful concerts.
On top of that, there is also something for museum lovers in the Lanserhaus: A permanent archaeological exhibition provides an interesting overview of the settlement history of the municipality of Appiano on the Wine Road. And since the remains of a Roman villa - architecturally splendid and with excellently preserved mosaic floors from the 4th century AD - were only recently uncovered in the vicinity, this history goes back a long time.
The archaeological exhibition is housed in the vaulted hall and tells you about the 10,000 years between the Stone Age and the Middle Ages in Appiano. On display are original finds such as Neolithic arrowheads and crossbow arrows from the age of chivalry, on loan from the Municipal Museum of Bolzano and the Provincial Office for Archaeological Monuments. And how can the Lanserhaus be reached? It is located in the centre of San Michele Appiano, there is a chargeable car park nearby. The bus line 135.3 stops at the St. Joseph Church, a 4-minute walk away.
