Imst

The famous Imst Schemenlaufen Parade is certainly the most important in Tirol if not one of the most important in all the Alps. Months and months of frenzied preparations precede this century-old spectacle, which possesses a mystical attraction no one can resist. Held every four years, the Imst Schemenlaufen was declared a “World Cultural Heritage” by UNESCO in 2012. Now, visitors can experience the fascinating world of Schemenlaufen in this "gem" of a museum, the Carnival Museum: Discover the remarkable history of the Imst carnival parade through special exhibitions, displays and interactive galleries. On display are lavishly decorated headdresses and elaborate wooden masks from time long past and from today.
