Galtür Alpinarium

Galtür in Tirol

The combination of protective walls and exhibition rooms makes the Galtür alpinarium and its architecture unique in Europe today.
A stone circle lit from inside in the entrance hall and a glass facade with alabaster stonesat Alpinarium Galtür symbolise the simultaneously fascinating and threatening forces of nature.

The mountain village and ski region of Galtür experienced this close up in 1999. The community lost people, homes and hopes due to an avalanche. All the more remarkable is its regeneration. The 345m long and up to 19m high avalanche wall not only integrates art and culture, but impresses with modern interior design and the exterior architecture adapted to the townscape and nature.

The use of the alpine signal colours of yellow and black, blue glass cullet as symbols of glaciers in the bar of the "Frozen Water" cafe and a bouldering wall form additional mountain reference points. The "LIFE ON THE MOUNTAIN - Snow Fascination - Avalanche Myth" exhibition shows the mountains as a challenge to the people, but also as a rootstock for myths and fairy tales, as a point of restoring peace and strength.
