In the treasury you may see various precious crowns, like the one on my picture - it is the crown of Holy Mary, that is used at certain festivities for the miracle-working sculpture of Goettweig - it dates back to the year 1719 and was made by an artist in Augsburg.
Another quite unique exhibit is the "hand" of a large crab that was used as a powder-box - enlarge my other pictures in order to see it !
Stift Goettweig was also for a very long time a place, where scientists were studying and so these exhibits were also used to support their studies.
