The Timmelsjoch Experience Pass Museum by Werner Tscholl


A road, formerly used mainly by migrating wild animals, connects the Pesseiertal and Ötztal valleys. These valleys, surrounded by a natural border created by the foot of the Timmelsjoch mountain chain, are connected by an ancient and rare simmilarity. Architectonic sculptures, situated on several touristic stops  along the road, introduce the beautiful landscape panoramas, its history, cultural background as well as local community and the economy of the region.

After visiting these structures and learning about the place, the tourists acquire so called „Timmelsjoch Experience“ – a regional mountain travel know-how. A part of this experience is Passo del Rombo – a museum by Werner Tscholl Architects. Located on the border of Germany (North Tyrole) and Italy the Pass Museum points out towards the South Tyrole side with its boulder-like structure, highlighting the international character of the Timmelsjoch Experience. Its interior resembles an ice cave, which honors the pioneers of High Alpine Road and their advancements.
