Museum with a View

By Zahra Al-Kateb

Museum with a view Image 1This is the sixth – and in our humble opinion, the best – in a series of mountaintop museums commissioned by climbing legend Reinhold Messner, the first person to climb Mount Everest without supplemental oxygen.

Perched on the vertiginous peak of Kronplatz in South Tyrol, Italy, Messner Mountain Museum Corones covers 11,000 sq ft and overlooks the stunning Dolomites and Alps landscapes. Inside are underground galleries that offer glimpses into the lives of mountaineers and climbers – including Messner himself – but the undoubted pièce de resistance is this viewing platform, cantilevered over a valley.

Open until October 11, and reopening at the end of November. If you’re arriving by plane, nearby Innsbruck airport accommodates private jets.
