Messner Mountain Museum Corones

The Messner Mountain Museum Corones is dedicated to traditional alpinism and impresses with its ingenious architecture and breathtaking mountain panoramas around Mt. Kronplatz.

The MMM Corones on top of the hiking and skiing area Mt. Kronplatz (2,275 m) was planned by Zaha Hadid: The modern building integrates harmoniously into the mountain landscape and at the same time offers unique views - from the Dolomites to the Zillertal Alps. The name of the museum refers to the Ladin denomination of Mt. Kronplatz.

Exhibition & view

In the Messner Mountain Museum Corones, Reinhold Messner focuses on traditional alpinism and the history of the Alps. Works of art, equipment and quotes tell of great personalities as well as the triumphs and tragedies on the world's most famous mountains.

Just below the summit plateau is another museum: the Lumen - Museum of Mountain Photography. Other locations of the Messner Mountain Museum project are at Bruneck Castle, Juval Castle, Sigmundskron Castle and in Sulden. The opening of the MMM Roca on the Helm in Sexten is planned for summer 2024.

Cable car ride or hiking tour

From St. Vigil, from Reischach or from Olang, various ropeway connections are available and directly conduce you to the peak of the magnificent panoramic mountain. The MMM Corones is also reachable by foot. The hike lasts about 4-5 hours from St. Vigil, from Reischach or from Olang.
