The Notburga Museum in Maurach on the shores of Achensee Lake is the only museum in Austria that is solely dedicated to a woman saint and is worth to be visited not only for this reason. St Notburga, the only Tirolean woman whose ancient cult was ever ratified, was born in the town of Rattenberg in 1265. The brave maid of a farmer on Rottenburg Castle, Notburga was noted for her generosity in feeding and supporting the poor in times of poverty and fatal diseases such as Leper. The Notburga Museum shows old documents illustrating how she was worshipped, a series of precious paintings and sculptures, as well as folk art. There is a special section focusing on the sorrows and fears of the common people during these times. In 2007, this noteworthy cultural facility was awarded the Museum Prize by the Provincial Government of Tirol.
