The Val Passiria Museum in San Leonardo

At the Sandhof in San Leonardo/Val Passiria, the original home of Austrian freedom fighter Andreas Hofer (1767 - 1810), Tyrolean history was made.

Bunker Museum in Moos

The quirky 'Bunker Mooseum' – everything you need to know about the history and countryside of Upper Val Passiria. The museum is unusual in many ways… the building itself, the surroundings and, of course, the contents. Today, the museum doesn't just tell the story of how the bunker came to be, rather it also addresses other topics which are of special importance to Val Passiria, mostly local history and the countryside.

Juval Castle and Reinhold Messner

Juval Castle was built by Hugo von Montalban in around 1278. In 1368, it was acquired by the Lords of Starkenberg and, eventually, after it had changed hands many times, it was passed on to the Sinkmoser family in 1540. Since 1983, the castle has been the residence of extreme mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner, who now keeps numerous art collections here.
