MMM Ortles

The Messner Mountain Museum in Solda in the Val Venosta valley tells about the “King” of Tyrol’s mountains, the 3,905 m high Ortles.

The museum dedicated to the topic "At the end of the world", located in South Tyrol's western part, in Solda all'Ortles, is based on the 3,905 m high "King Ortles", the highest mountain of Tyrol (in the picture in the background, behind Mt. Zebrù, another peak of the Ortles Alps).

The mountain museum shows the world of ice, inspired by the novel "The Terrors of Ice and Darkness" by Christoph Ransmayr and the largest collection of pictures of Mt. Ortles worldwide as well as ice-climbing gear from two centuries. Here you'll find out more about Snow People and Snow Lions, the Arctic and Antarctic, avalanches and artworks made of ice.

Fittingly, the MMM Ortles is an underground structure. Furthermore, here in Solda Reinhold Messner's yak herd lives, the long-haired domesticated cattle found throughout the Himalayan region. The Yak&Yeti tavern next to the museum offers South Tyrolean and Himalayas delicacies. And how to reach the MMM Ortles? It is located in the Via Forestale road in Solda, a parking space is available. In the adiacent Via Principale road, however, there's a bus stop.
