Mountain climber and explorer
Reinhold Messner is one of the most famous mountain climbers in the world. His expeditions include Mount Everest, crossing the Antarctic and Greenland and trekking through the Gobi desert.
Mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner ascended all the world's eight-thousand-metre peaks. The South Tyrolean crossed deserts and Antarctica and published about 50 books. His adventures fill six remarkable museums.
Following the ascent on July 14, 1865, the Matterhorn became the thing of myth, the epitome of mountaineering, and the world's most photographed mountain. Its highest peak has become the emblem of Switzerland.
Italian mountaineer Reinhold Messner has conquered some of the world's highest summits. He now finds the biggest challenge in his work as a politician.
