Mt. Lagazuoi open air museum in the rock tunnel
The tunnel, dug into the Lagazuoi Mountain during the First World War, provides a close-up insight into the lives of the Alpini soldiers during the First World War.
The route through the rock tunnel at Mt. Lagazuoi is accessible from the top station of the cable car Lagazuoi with only 10 minutes walk on an easy well signposted path.
In 1996 the main tunnel in the rock (about 3 km long) as well as the side tunnels were restored and rebuilt at their original length. The restoration was possible thanks to the cooperation of the Italian and Austrian military corps.
In the side tunnels you can see utensils and weapons from the First World War and information panels which illustrate the events of the war.
At the base station of the Lagazuoi cable car you can rent tape recorders with English commentary.
