Alpinarium Galtür

The Alpinarium consists of an exhibition, a café, an indoor climbing wall, an internet lounge as well as seminar rooms.

The Alpinarium Galtür was conceived as a response to an avalanche tragedy in 1999, which destroyed part of the village of Galtür. One element of the afterwards newly built 345 m long and 19 m high avalanche safety wall, consisting of 700,000 kg of steel, is the Alpinarium. Exactly this combination of show room and barrier wall make this building unique. In other words, it combines safety measures with functional content. In the Alpinarium, there is also a room dedicated to the commemoration of the victims of the tragedy of February 23, 1999.

The exhibition in the Alpinarium guides visitors across the world of mountains and provides information about the formation of the Alps, climate, erosion, precipitations, avalanches as well as their impact on humans. The permanent exhibition "AT THE TOP - stories about Galtür and the world" shows you the connection of Galtür to the world. Furthermore, since 2018 the permanent exhibition is extended by the story of the gentian of Galtür, "Galtürer Enzner", and since 2021 by the temporary exhibition "Ice - a perishable good".

The Alpinarium offers also an indoor climbing wall and a panoramic platform with a 360° view on the mountains of North Tyrol, including the Gorfenspitze and Ballunspitze. The museum has been awarded with the Austrian quality seal "Österreichisches Museumsgütesiegel".
