The building is in possession of the township, also numerous cultural events take place in the castle and its courtyard. At the entrance, a heavy bronze bull welcomes the guests, an artwork of the East Tyrolean sculptor Jos Pirkner.
The exhibition inside the castle draws a line from prehistory until today: findings from early times and the Roman town Aguntum near Lienz are shown as well as objects of the East Tyrolean folklore, like looms and costumes, and a natural history collection. Presence can be found in the castle tower in the form of a photo exhibition "Tirol Archiv Photographie". The western wing houses contemporary art.
But the Regional Museum Lienz is especially known because of its Egger-Lienz Gallery, one of the biggest public collections of the East Tyrolean expressionist Albin Egger-Lienz (1868 - 1926). Among his famous artworks are "Der Totentanz" and "Sämann und der Teufel". By the way: the museum was awarded the Austrian Museum Certification in 2006.
