  • are the day of the journey home in the museum. are then loud enthusiasm home remained to closing and until very late has come, but it was worth it! very nice facility with great exhibits and information about the mountain sports. personally have reinhold messner in the nice cafe place hit. is overall very recommendable, though which is not exactly cheap. but is it worth every penny!

  • The castle itself is already quite impressive - the use of several refurbished buildings and towers have succeeded very well. The rooms - especially the Tibetan room at the beginning of the round has drawn us completely under its spell. We arrived in the early afternoon - and were absorbed into the objects and spaces that we were quite surprised that the end of visiting time (18:00 h) was reached. We will also visit the other museums.

  • Here, looks and feel, that Mr Messner his knowledge and his "passion" in the realization of this truly impressive gesamtkunstwerk has incorporated. The exhibits and information have been integrated perfectly in the restored castle complex. The occasional views of the landscape are also very impressive. The system is somewhat labyrinthine-like, so that you can easily lose the orientation. More signs such as output, or an arrows, which contribute to better orientation would be attached there. You want to all see after all, for some parts twice. The entrance fee is currently € 10,00. You can park a few minutes away. (gebürenpflichtig). Note: with the Almencard PLUS is the entry F E R I! (As well as with some other MMM, as well as nearly 80 museums as a whole.
