Museum “The Magic of Water”

In the Valle Aurina valley the Water Museum tells about the power and secrets of this wonderful element.

Water - source of life... And exactly to this important topic an own museum is dedicated in the Valle Aurina valley which takes care of the element in an interesting way. It was opened more than a decade ago in the dower of Lappago, a little village in the Valle dei Molini valley. The basement vault of the dower was converted into an exhibition space. After two years of travels, also the exhibition "Goodbye Glaciers" returned in 2021 to its original place and can be visited.

The place was chosen with care because water is omnipresent here: in the Valle dei Molini valley there is the Neves Reservoir as well as numerous small lakes in the wonderful alpine world of the Valli di Tures e Aurina valleys, on the south side of the Zillertal Alps. Brooks, rivers and mills also belong to it. The impressive power of water can revitalise and destroy, can be casual or changing. This and other events on the subject of water, such as its artistic potential, can be discovered in the Museum "The Magic of Water" - Museum "Magie des Wassers" in German, Museo "Magia dell'Acqua" in Italian - within a guided tour.

Directly at the museum, several thematic paths start: path A "The Power of Water - Die Kraft des Wassers" leads to the Neves Reservoir, path B "Water and Wheel - Wasser und Rad" into the interesting world of the mills, path C "Lappago Gorge-Waterfalls - Lappacher Klamm-Wasserfälle" through the wild Lappago Gorge and path D "Neves Reservoir - Neves Megaspeicher" rounds the artificial lake. And how to reach the Water Museum? It is located in the dower in the centre of Lappago. The village is also accessible by the bus no. 451 from Campo Tures.
