South Tyrolean museums: witnesses to a turbulent history

The history and culture of our borderland is very interesting. This is where Ötzi the Iceman fought at the Hauslabjoch and where the Rhaetians and Romans made wine. Medieval emperors and kings feared our mountain land, while Oswald von Wolkenstein loved it, as did Andreas Hofer.

Luis Trenker climbed here for the German cinema industry when South Tyrol was a part of Italy, while Reinhold Messner from the Villnöss valley conquered the peaks of the world.

South Tyrol has seen a great deal. It is worth finding out a bit more about the culture, society and history of the area. Apart from the well-known museums (for instance the Ötzi Archaeological Museum in Bozen, the mining museums at Ridnaun and Prettau, the Brixen diocesan museum, the Messner Mountain Museum at Firmian, the Bozen natural history museum, the mineral museum of Teis, the Museion for contemporary art in Bozen and the Touriseum in Meran), we can recommend numerous other small museums.

Just look around South Tyrol’s varied museum landscape! Here is a guide to the museums of South Tyrol
