Exhibition “Emperor Maximilian I in the Tirol Oberland”

Landeck, 04.08.2019 - 22.09.2019

Both politically and geographically, Emperor Maximilian I ranged far and wide. He was constantly on the move and his travels along the “Upper Route” are documented in this exhibition at Landeck Castle.

Developed as a cultural and commercial artery between the Adriatic Sea and the Danube by Roman Emperor Claudius, this main link between the Roman Empire and the Alpine Foothills was called “Via Claudia Augusta”. It was the only Roman road across the Alps and through the Tirol Oberland Region. Emperor Maximilan frequently used the “Upper Route” as Via Claudia was later called on his travels. The exhibition documents the places where the Habsburg sovereign used to stay, including Wormser Joch, Glurns and Resia (today’s Italy), Naudersberg, Finstermünz, Landeck, Imst, Fernstein, Ehrenberg (today’s Austrian Tirol) and Füssen in today’s Germany.
