About Reinhold Messner + Ralf-Peter Märtin

Reinhold Messner, born in 1944, is the most famous mountaineer and adventurer of our time. As an extreme mountain climber, pioneer and ‘Philosopher in Action’, he has constantly set new benchmarks. Messner was the first person to scale all fourteen eight-thousanders, including Mount Everest, which he was the ­rst person to climb alone without additional oxygen (Everest Solo). In 1989/90, he crossed Antarctica together with Arved Fuchs. As an author and filmmaker, Messner now fights for the sustained ecological treatment of nature, running mountain farms and develops his mountain museum, the Messner Mountain Museum with its various locations.
