Bunker Mooseum in Passeiertal
Recently, a new and impressive museum facility has been opened in Moos, in Upper Passeier. The building also functions as info point for the Texelgruppe nature park and offers exhibition areas displaying the history and settlement of the Passeiertal as well as a rock tunnel from the 40s, climbing walls and much more.
A big glass tower, which is dedicated to the Texelgruppe nature park, functions as entrance area. From here, you enjoy a fantastic view over Moos and environs and have access to the adjacent rock tunnel. Once, the tunnel had been used as a storing space and is now an exhibition area for various finds being important historical witnesses from the glacial era to the present.
The rock tunnel & its history
The tunnel in Moos was part of the Fascist Alpine Wall (Vallo Alpini del Littorio). Built in 1938, it was meant to secure the border to confining Germany. The rock tunnel was a fortification, protection and command bunker for the other tunnels. In Upper Passeier, six bunkers of this kind has been build. Realised directly in the rock, the tunnel offers a seven meters thick, bomb secure wall and two floors connected via a spiral staircase. Today, the facilities are open to visitors.
Climbing walls & ibexes
The Bunker Mooseum is not only limited to the indoor area. Thanks to the immediate proximity to Texelgruppe nature park, visitors have the possibility to observe ibexes in an extensive enclosed area.
Moreover, the outside area features an artificial climbing wall. The climbing park offers 18 routes up the 30-metre high rock face (difficulty from 5c+ to 7b) as well as 6 tours up the climbing wall. Climbers must bring their own equipment and climb at their own risk.
