Royal and Imperial Museum Bad Egart

The Royal and Imperial Museum near Parcines is a real paradise for enthusiasts of the Habsburg Monarchy

Bad Egart, or Bagni Egart, is a special place, as it is considered Tyrol's oldest spa. Already in 1430 this spring was used and abandoned only in 1970. Probably the history of Bad Egart dates back to the Roman period, when the spring was used for drinking and bath cures. The name is based on the nymph Egeria of the Roman mythology. And in this historic place, in parts of the ancient spa, antiquities and curiosities tell more about the final stage of the Habsburg Monarchy, the so-called k.u.k. (Royal and Imperial) period of the Austro-Hungarian Empire between 1867 and 1918.

What you can admire are exhibits of the ancient spa and an impressive Habsburg collection ranging from the Empress Elisabeth of Austria (Sisi) to Rudolf, Crown Prince of Austria, inter alia also very personal items. Exhibited are also a Biedermeier kitchen, a corner shop of the Val Senales valley and a wide variety of folk art antiquities, shown in 60 vitrines. This is all due to the owner and collector Karl Platino, known as "Onkel Taa" (Uncle Taa), who arranged this museum within a period of 50 years. The restaurant close by carries his name. Worth mentioning is also the freely accessible open-air area, where you can see how Oetzi the Iceman lived.

Stone masks and menhirs, a snail culture and the Reconciliation Chapel as well as information regarding the history of the South Tyrolean farmers complete the museum offer. And how to reach the Royal and Imperial Museum Bad Egart (K.u.k. Museum Bad Egart)? It is located in the Via Stazione road in Tel near Parcines. A parking space is available, furthermore it is perfectly connected to the means of public transport: Outside the entrance to the open-air area there's the train station (Val Venosta Railway) and a bus stop (line no. 213 Merano-Parcines).
