The impressive exhibitions in Alpinarium Galtür reveal how existential life in Tyrol can be.
Exhibitions in Galtür – experience the mountains with all your senses
How close beauty and terror lie together in the mountains, is something people in Tyrol know about from painful experience. The challenges of daily life in the mountains are revealed in an intense manner in the permanent exhibition ‘The fascination of snow; the legend of the avalanche’. Human endeavour to adapt to the natural surroundings are as much a theme here as the phenomena of climate change. The phenomenon of avalanches is central – how these menacing snow masses come about, how people protect themselves from them, and how they are able to survive in the event of an avalanche. As well as this permanent exhibition, Alpinarium Galtür also regularly presents special shows concerning topics from the mountains in Tyrol.
