The Multscher and Town Museum is located in the former Deutschordenskommende right next to the town parish church. Besides the rooms of the Teutonic Order lords and the guild signs of the craftsmen, the late Gothic winged altar from 1459 by the sculptor and painter Hans Multscher from Ulm is particularly worth seeing. The town museum is open from the beginning of April to the end of October.
The Sterzing town hall with its Gothic council chamber, built between 1468 and 1473, is also impressive. The hall has wall panelling and a beamed ceiling and is said to be one of the most beautiful council halls in North and South Tyrol. In addition to the hall, there is also a remarkable art collection in the town hall that can be visited. The town hall is connected to the adjacent "Vigil Raber" civic hall by an atrium.

The bishop's ministerials inhabited the castle until the middle of the 13th century, from 1469 to 1809 the estate was owned by the Teutonic Knights and then Reifenstein Castle was given to the Thurn and Taxis family.
