Extreme mountain climber Reinhold Messner has established five museums in South Tyrol, all of them with a different approach - mountains, the mountain regions of the world, and the lifestyles of the mountain peoples.
MMM Juval - Myth of the Mountain
The museum in Juval Castle in Vinschgau is dedicated to the Magic of the Mountains. Tibetica collection, a gallery of paintings of the world’s holy mountains, a collection of masks from five continents, a unique Gesar of Ling exhibition, a Tantra Room and the Expedition Cellar are just a few highlights to be mentioned. Trained guides explain all the exhibits through their tours. There is also a small mountain zoo, home-grown products which are sold at the Schlosswirt tavern. Excellent wines in Unterortl are offered at the farmhouse shop.
