Reinhold Messner - Insights

Reinhold Messner about his life at the limit and what drives him to look for new challenges.

Dear visitor,

as an Internet-illiterate I prefer to speak live about my life as a mountain farmer, mountaineer, museum and film maker. I started my seventh life after I reinvented myself six times and now I tell my life away. After my time as a rock climber, high altitude climber, border crossers in polar regions and deserts, researcher, politician and museum ideator, I remain storyteller and keeper of the last not urbanized spaces on earth. I am interested in the relationship between human nature and wilderness, personal responsibility and experiences on the edge of our possibilities, a self-determined life at last.
