Museum for Medieval Culture of Living

A medieval kitchen, a Gothic parlour and valuable old furnishings can be seen in Palù-Schulthaus Castle in Appiano

The complex of Palù-Schulthaus Castle, which today houses the Museum of Medieval Culture of Living, is one of the many stately buildings in Appiano. The museum itself - "Museum für mittelalterliche Wohnkultur" in German, "Museo di Cultura Medievale" in Italian - was established in these old walls already in 1983 and offers you an interesting insight into the life of former times.

On display are the interiors, including an intact medieval kitchen, a Gothic parlour and valuable furnishings. The rooms, richly decorated with frescoes, include a hunting chamber and a sleeping room with a canopy bed. The depictions on the walls are particularly unique: The frescoes dating from around 1470/75 were whitewashed in later years and only came to light again in the course of restoration work in the 20th century. In the fresco "Katzen-Mäuse-Krieg" (Cat-Mouse War), the mice have the upper hand. Also shown are hunting scenes and a miracle tree from which women pick phalluses, a symbol for fertility and strength.

The building is also worth seeing from the outside: The walls are not plastered, so the individual building eras are recognisable. The museum is only accessible by appointment, a visit is worthwhile. And how can it be reached? Palù-Schulthaus Castle stands near Appiano Monte (Eppan Berg). A narrow road leads up to it, and the bus line 135 also stops in Appiano Monte.
