Tunnel World

The Brenner Base Tunnel Infocenter
An adventure and a world of knowledge for young and less young alike

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!

Here you can pound, build, shovel, measure, smell, hear, read, feel, press, turn, type, sit, climb and even lie flat! And that’s not all!

The 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?
