Where there is light, there is also shadow. Luckily for us! The strong contrast between light and dark gives our mountains their impressive appearance and has made them a popular (and beautiful) spot for photographs for 150 years.
In the LUMEN Museum (lat. light) on the Kronplatz near Bruneck/Brunico, historical photographs take you on a journey through the history of (mountain) photography. A ‘Wall of Fame’ is dedicated to the adventurers of the early days who lugged their heavy photographic equipment to the summit. Modern works, installations, the Red Bull Adrenalin Room and the Mirror Room illuminate the theme of the mountain in all its diversity – as a sacred symbol, as a political force, as an inspiring natural wonder – and thus create a world of experience for all the senses in LUMEN.
