The Folklore Museum at Dietenheim in Bruneck was established in 1976. Sitz is an old, very grand and magnificent courtyard, one of four Maier courtyards in Dietenheim, a village, which was officially documented for the first time in 995, and whose name is evidence of the first settlement of Bavarians in Pustertal.
The scenic village of Brunico is located in the center of the Puster Valley. Modern and medieval charm creates a very special kind of harmony. The historical "Stadtgasse" invites you to linger about with its numerous restaurants, cafes, and boutiques. Enjoy a weekly (Wednesday) market with lots of local products.
The MMM Ripa at Bruneck Castle, once the summer residence of the Prince-Archbishop, is dedicated to the mountain tribes of the entire world – Asia, Africa, South America and Europe – as well as to their culture, religion and tourism. As mountain culture is reflected especially in the everyday life of the mountain dweller, the “heritage of the mountain”, that for centuries has ensured survival high up in the mountains, is brought closer to museum visitors by means of dwellings, films and encounters.
At MMM Corones, situated on the peak plateau of the Kronplatz, at a height of 2.275 metres, traditional alpinism is the focus of attention, as characterized conclusively by Reinhold Messner. Alpine history is recounted here, as part of the exhibition, as well as presenting the exceptional view of the great Dolomite and Alpine rock faces. At the edge of the greatest observation plateau in the Southern Tyrol, in the distinctive Zaha Hadid Museum building, the view unfolds in all directions, reaching across the country borders: from the Lienz Dolomites in the east to the Ortler Mountain in the west, and from the Marmolada in the south to the Zillertal in the north.
