Sigmundskron Castle and the MMM Messner Mountain Museum
Sigmundskron Castle towers over theEtsch Valley, southwest of Bolzano/Bozen MMM Firmiano, also known as “the enchanted mountain", is the fourth and main mountain museum created by Reinhold Messner. Messner illustrates just how important mountains are for mankind within Sigmundskron Castel’s ancient walls, which are enhanced by a modern steel-and-glass structure. A tour of the castle leads visitors around the "holy mountain": display cases, sculptures, symbolic objects, and memorabilia from numerous expeditions recount the history of the mountains along the way. The White Tower is dedicated to the history of the castle and that of South Tyrol.
