Join Reinhold Messner, the world’s best-known mountaineer and adventurer, in an exclusive free online stream. The event includes an interview session.

Messner will tell us unhesitatingly about the adventures and challenges of his life, about his achievements and setbacks. He’ll also converse about his perception of courage, passion and responsibility, and about his love for the mountains of our world. Supported by photographs and videos, this live show will take us into Messner’s past. We learn about his childhood in the Tyrolese alps and his ambition to become one of the world’s greatest adventurers. Messner will also talk about his later career as a politician, mountain farmer, founder of a chain of famous museums and his personal life as a husband and father.

He was the first climber to reach all fourteen peaks over 8000 metres above sea level, and climbed a further 3500 peaks.
