Fodor's Review

Since 1983 this 13th-century castle in the hills above the hamlet of Stava has been the summer home of the south Tirolese climber and polar adventurer Reinhold Messner—the first climber to conquer Everest solo. Part of the castle has been turned into one of six in Messner's chain of Dolomite museums, where guided tours are required to view his collection of Tibetan art and masks from around the world. It's a five-minute shuttle ride from the car park below or an hour hike on many local trails.
