At six extraordinary spots mountaineer Reinhold Messner set up six museums, each of them focusing on a different aspect of climbing and mountains. Sigmundskron Castle near Bozen, Juval Castle near Meran, Ripe Castle at Bruneck, high on the peak of Kronplatz near Bressanone, on Mount Ripe between Cortina and Pieve di Cadore and at Sulden Reinhold Messner the museums tell their stories of successes and failures, of religions and rituals, nature and culture.
