Come on in!

You won’t be able to stop saying “WOW”! Tunnel World will offer its visitors exciting and unexpected glimpses of the mysteries that surround the construction of the roughly 64-km long Brenner Base Tunnel between Innsbruck and Fortezza. Discover the roughly 800 square meters of the Tunnel World exhibition that show the largest tunnel project in Europe and offer exciting glimpses of the underground world of the Alps. The project may be underground, but we have everything right out in the open.

Group size: 10–50 people

A world of knowledge for young and less young alike

Tunnel World

You’ll be surprised at how exciting and multi-faceted tunnel construction can be! The many unusual objects on display, having to do with history, geology, topography, tunnel construction, environmental issues and so much more, invite you to touch, play and learn.

Find out how many drill holes and how much explosive you need to excavate a few metres of tunnel! Set off a volley! Stroll through our display tunnel in the Infocenter or use the building blocks to build a tunnel that actually stays up!

We guarantee “WOWs!!”

You never stop learning...

A children’s area inside the exhibition and the play stations outside are especially inviting for families.

What does it look like inside the tunnel? What kind of stones lie in the depths of the mountain, along the tunnel route? What are a buffalo and a jumbo doing in the tunnel? Why do you need anchors in tunnel construction? How is a tunnel ventilated? All these questions are easily and colourfully answered at Tunnel World. Any more questions?


Guided tours through the exhibition and more

On today’s agenda: Biology, geography, physics, geology, history and much more!
Believe us, the Brenner Base Tunnel is much more than a tunnel.
There are many other topics that are at least as fascinating and you probably didn't even think they were related to tunnelling.
