Church museum in Ernen


The parish church of St.Georg was built by the famous Prismell master builder Ulrich Ruffener under Bishop Matthäus Schiner of Mühlebach. The magnificent Baroque high altar dates back to 1758-61. The church museum has been located under the high altar in the crypt since 1999. Visitors can admire the numerous elaborately hand-crafted Baroque chasubles, especially the Schiner chasuble dating back to 1500 and the Schiner chalice. You can also admire the work of goldsmiths in the church museum during the village tour and a series of objects relating to the history of the parish. The church museum in the parish church of St. Georg is a stop on the village tour.
