Steyr nativity scene
Steyr nativity scene in the Innerberger Stadl
The Steyr nativity scene is one of the last stick puppet theatres still performing in the German language area. Since about 1850 two touring nativity scenes with numerous figures have travelled through the Steyr area performing theatre plays at inns. These two nativity scenes are thought to have merged later into the Steyr nativity scene. On the lower stage, which shows the Bethlehem stable, religious scenes are performed. On the central stage the stalls of craftsmen and traders are set up. The upper stage depicts the Christmas town Steyr in the Biedermeier period and is the setting for worldly happenings.
