If there was an award for the Most Interesting Man In The World, Reinhold Messner would definitely make the cut for the top contenders. The Italian mountaineer has conquered the deadliest mountains on Earth, including Mount Everest, which he did without supplemental oxygen. Now, he’s giving back to mountain climbing enthusiasts with the Messner Mountain Museum, a network of six amazing places in South Tyrol and Belluno.

Our favorite of the six is the Corones, which is placed on the plateau of Kronplatz, 2,275m above sea level. The structure was designed by the late Zaha Hadid and dedicated to 250 years of traditional mountaineering, including the evolution of the equipment. Stand at the edge of the incredible viewing platform and you can take in some awe-inspiring views that go well beyond the borders of South Tyrol. In addition, there’s the Firmian, examining the religious significance of the peaks, Dolomites with a focus on rock, a museum at Juval Castle dedicated to the ‘Magic of the Mountain,’ Ripa, which is devoted to the study of mountain people, and Ortles, an underground structure that showcases the world of ice. You can plan your trip to the one-of-a-kind Messner Mountain Museum now.
