Organizer: Museum Runkelstein Castle
Add to bookmarks


The hunting scenes which can be seen in the frescos of Runkelstein Castle showing hunts for bear, wild boar, stag, ibex and chamois, as well as hunting scenes in other picturesque castles, mansions and historic farmhouses in the Tyrol, offer a valuable insight into the history of hunting. From these works of art, we can learn a lot about the types of hunting and the hunting techniques used in the past. The exhibition explores the history of hunting from prehistory until the modern period: from fishing to stag hunting, looking at the weapons and equipment used, the development of hunting law, and also describing contemporary hunting practices.
