The City of Sports
Brunico/Bruneck stands for sport, especially for mountain sports. The city is also lively and elegant. The connection between tradition and modernity is particularly evident in architecture, crafts and gastronomy.
The Kronplatz mountain dominates the city. On this mountain is the sixth and last museum of the great Alpinist Reinhold Messner, the Messner Mountain Museum Corones. Designed by star architect Zaha Hadid, this unique building offers a fascinating view of the three South Tyrolean mountains that have had a significant impact on Reinhold Messner's life. The charisma of the mountaineer is also felt in the valley. Located just above the town, as the guardian of local traditions, the Messner Mountain Museum RIPA is located in Schloss Bruneck castle. The museum allows visitors the opportunity to visit mountain peoples from all over the world.
To experience the mountains, you do not necessarily have to climb the summits. You can also just visit the new Climbing Centre in heart of Brunico. If you prefer to relax a bit, the Cron4 is just right for you: a water park with a variety of pools for all needs and a wellness spa with 13 different saunas.
In the City Museum, you can discover modern and contemporary art as well as an interesting historical collection. Not far from the old town is the Military Cemetery, one of the most important memorials of the First World War in South Tyrol. Meanwhile, the Teodone/Dietenheim hamlet is home to the South Tyrolean Folklore Museum, the oldest of the South Tyrolean provincial museums. In this open-air museum you can explore rural life of earlier days in every detail.
Manufacturers have a long tradition in Brunico. The Tuchfabrik Moessmer is a prime example. Here, wool is processed over the entire production cycle. The company is an important supplier and partner of major international fashion brands such as Prada or Armani.
