The angel knows the way!

Every year during the Advent season in Nußdorf am Attersee a nativity scene is set up from the end of November to the end of January. Survival-sized nativity scene figures are displayed in the music pavilion of the municipality of Nußdorf am Attersee. The figures represent people from Nußdorf and this in amazing similarity.

History of origins:
In 1998 the idea of an additional use of the music pavilion also in winter was born. The Nußdorf Gold Crested Wives went to work with the painter and sculptor, Mrs. Nora Brunnhofer, and created the core of the present day stock: the Holy Family with two shepherds, for which the husbands of active traditional costume women were godfathers: the baker Hans with the bread body and the innkeeper Walter with wine jug and winegrower's apron.
In the second year the old Hiaslbauer-Leut (Gruber) joined them, honorable former Nussdorf farmers and bourgeoisie.
Among other things, animals and secondary figures were gradually created. In the year 2000 some figures were created again, for example a young pair of brothers. The former owners of Ragging are also in the circle: he as butcher with the sausage wreath in his pocket, she as unforgotten landlady who took care of the guests' well-being, and since 2001 also Hanni's aunt.
Not to be forgotten is also the old Schwarzenbacherin, the mountain farmer's wife with many children, who uses her egg basket to supplement her modest household money. Toni, a disabled veteran, is a humorous character from our village life.

Already a considerable part of the past lies the noble crib visitor Baron Eugen von Ransonnet. With a delay, the Three Wise Men also joined the Nußdorf Christmas crib.
Today the community owes him the first developments regarding tourism in the community of Nußdorf am Attersee.
The nativity scene became royal in 2001, Nora Brunnhofer still made the Three Wise Men.

The man-sized figures are standing in the music pavilion in Nußdorf and will not be overlooked by walkers or passers-by on the street.

The angel, which is placed above the crib, announces:
"Take a rest and look where the people of Nußdorf keep watch at the village crib at Christmas time - and with their ancestors!

As already mentioned, the figures were made according to own designs by Mrs. Nora Brunnhofer.
She is a trained painter and sculptor and has been responsible for countless sets and masks at the Linz State Theater since 1970.
Mrs. Brunnhofer did not know most of the figures personally and was therefore dependent on photographic representations.
When selecting the materials, special emphasis was placed on weather resistance and easy handling.

Since the figures are larger than life, they need a lot of supporting hands to set them up. Thanks to all those who set up and maintain the nativity scene every year!

Goldhaubengruppe, Verschönerungsverein and the friends of the village crib wish a nice stay at the Nußdorf crib!
