oetzi museum

Should there nevertheless be a rainy day, it is a real must to visit the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology. Not far from Walther Square and the medieval arcades, it is ideally situated in the centre of Bolzano. Experience 5,000 years of human history and visit the world-famous glacier mummy.

 

 

 

Messner Mountain Museum

schloss schenna

The Messner Mountain Museum Firmiano housed in Firmiano Castle was opened in 2006 after three years of renovation. Reinhold Messner also calls it the „enchanted mountain“, as mountains have the power to enchant people. At the Messner Mountain Museum Firmiano, you will exactly experience this philosophy. A modern structure of glass and steel was added to the old walls of Firmiano Castle and it now tells you about the importance of mountains for people. Learn about the history of mountaineering and experience the influence of mountains on art of several cultures.

 

 

 

Tyrol Castle

schloss schenna

The South Tyrolean provincial museum of history and culture, once the residence of the Counts of Tyrol, provides an overall view of settlers in the Alpine region from the 7th century BC until today. You can marvel at a melting furnace from the Bronze Age, which is still fully intact. The main wall, built around 1100, remains one of the oldest and best preserved castle walls and it still includes parts of the battlements. The two marble portals dating to the 12th century are rich in symbolic sculptures and are among the most original creations of Romanesque art in Tyrol. The chapel with frescoes from the 13th centuries offers the oldest examples of glass painting in Tyrol and a mighty wooden sculpture dating to the 14th century, representing the crucifixion scene. Tyrol Castle is said to be the cradle of Tyrol.
