Following in the footsteps of Tirol's only female saint!

Notburga museum in Eben

Notburga lived in the 13th century, but her devoted service to others still radiates today. It's no surprise that the patron saint of servants and peasants is also venerated as a national saint.

Notburga von Rattenberg was a plain maid who spent her life helping the poor, the sick and the needy. The Notburga church in Eben am Achensee is named after her. Right next to it, the former rectory, which together with the pilgrimage church and the sacristan's house forms a wonderful ensemble of baroque architecture, is also home to a beautiful museum dedicated to Tirol's only saint. The museum lets you discover Notburga's wondrous history and see the oldest documents of Notburga's veneration as well as exhibits of Baroque art and processional objects.

The old rectory is also the seat of the "Notburga Community", an association of women who provide service to "distressed people of all kinds". The group has also initiated the Dien-Mut-Weg (path of reflection) in Pertisau, a self-guided walk through mostly shady forest featuring 18 stations of contemplation. The name of the path goes back to the old German word "Diemuot", which means "courage to serve".

The museum displays the oldest documents of the veneration of St. Notburga, precious paintings and sculptures, and baroque art exhibits.
