South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology

The South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology is the home of the Ice Man, the 5300-year-old mummy discovered in the Similaun glacier. The mummy's presence has made this one of the most visited museums of its kind in the world. The exhibits are spread over an area of 1200 square meters (12916.6 square feet) and four floors. The museum presents the history of the Alto Adige, from the dawn of time to the early Middle Ages through original archaeological finds, models, holograms, videos, and audio guides. The mummy named Ötzi is located on the first floor in the bronze age section. He is surrounded by the story of his discovery and relative scientific and medical information. Some of the items found with Ötzi are displayed alongside him. Although the highlight of the visit will obviously be the mummy, visitors interested in archaeology will be pleasantly surprised by the quality and importance of the other finds exhibited here.

Piazza Walther

This is the nerve center of the city and is an obligatory stop for tourists, being the best place to start a trip around the old town. The square is closed to all traffic except buses and takes its name from the white marble monument (1889) in its center, this monument is dedicated to the medieval German poet Walther von der Vogelweide. Piazza Walther is also known as the city's 'drawing room' and is surrounded by all sorts of buildings and two of the best hotels in the city, the Greif and the Città. During the summer, the bars and cafes put tables and chairs outside. It is a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by. The Duomo is located just a few meters from the square and is the most important Gothic construction in the region. The bell tower is 65 meters tall and was built in the 16th century, while the cathedral itself, dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta, was begun in 1295 and completed at the beginning of the 16th Century.


The museum was founded in 1985 by a private organization in collaboration with the Provincia Autonoma di Bolzano. The museum makes every effort to make use of its location between the Italian and German cultural and linguistic areas. In 1991, the museum changed its name to Museion to highlight the fact that it is also involved with other forms of contemporary art apart from art collections and exhibitions. The museum has two floors, the ground floor (used for temporary exhibitions, offices, and library) and the basement (storage and workshops) inside the building, which was constructed in 1860 and used as a hospital for many years.

Renon Cableway

Renon Cableway in Bolzano, Italy has revolutionized travel with shorter travel times and frequent Gondolas. It is a fabulous mode of transport with a breathtaking view of the city and is very accessible through the historic downtown. Not just a convenient way of transport but it is also a popular tourist attraction.

Maria Himmelfahrt

The imposing structure of Maria Himmelfahrt is a parish cathedral that sits in the heart of the old town. Building work began in 1295 by Lombard masters in a Romanesque style and was continued in a Gothic style and completed during the first decades of the 15th Century. Its bell tower is 65 meters (213 feet) tall and has an imposing spire made of sandstone, the work of the Swabian architect and sculptor Hans Lutz von Schussenried between the years 1501 and 1519. Well worth seeing is the Romanesque portal with its arch supported by two columns, the rose window and the frescoes.

Messner Mountain Museum

Located at Castle Sigmundskron, Messner Mountain Museum is neither intended as a mountaineering museum nor a museum featuring South Tyrol's mountains. It is, rather intended to show what effect a mountain has on people with respect to its enormity, natural habitat, and general influence on the common man. At Sigmundskron, visitors are guided on a tour explaining the history of the mountains based on pictures, sculptures, symbolic objects and mementos collected the world over on numerous expeditions. The white tower consisting of several floors is dedicated to the history of South Tyrol.
