Guided tours & important information
The nature as museum
The exhibition trail also integrates the surroundings of Sigmundskron Castle. The fortress, which overlooks Bozen, offers fine views of the Texel mountains, the Ötz Valley Alps and the majestic Schlern. Even the town in the foreground and the motorway that passes through the hill on which the castle stands are incorporated in the overall design – as examples of how man interacts with the mountains today.
The visitor proceeds clockwise around the central rock with the ruins of the 10th century chapel. There is no access to the highest point. There are no guided tours.
An audio-video guide (German/Italian/English) to the museum is available featuring Reinhold Messner personally. Rent of the multimedia guide: € 5.00.
