Juval Castle high above the entrance to the Val Venosta and Val Senales valleys houses the Messner Mountain Museum Juval.
"Myth of mountain" at Juval Castle, the private residence of Reinhold Messner located near Naturno high above the entrance to the Val Senales valley, is dedicated to the religious dimension of the mountains. The five other museums of the Messner Mountain Museum project, however, tell about the traditional alpinism, the "rock" and the "ice" as elements, man's encounter with the mountains and the mountain peoples around the world.
The venerable walls host a collection of masks from five continents and the Expedition Cellar, as well as a unique Gesar of Ling exhibition - the fearless lord of the legendary kingdom of Ling -, a Tantra Room, a gallery of paintings of the world's holy mountains and an extensive adventure library. The MMM Juval centrepiece is the largest Tibetica collection worldwide.
There is also a small mountain zoo, the Schlosswirt tavern which offers local delicacies, the Unterortl winery and a small farmer's shop at the foot of the castle hill. And how to reach Juval Castle? You can reach it either by foot on the Stava or Ciardes Waalwege paths, or by the shuttle service which starts at the parking space beneath the castle.
