Forte Belvedere Gschwendt

One of the most beautiful Austro-Hungarian military forts

  • The animated model of the Great War Museum
  • The reconstruction of the trench environment
  • Objects and documents that testify to the living conditions of soldiers
  • The “Fortezza delle Emozioni” is an enthralling experience

Forte Belvedere Gschwendt is one of the best preserved Austro-Hungarian fortresses in Trentino. Built between 1908 and 1914, it bears witness to the striking stories of the First World War. It is now home to an innovative museum featuring multimedia creations such as the “Fortezza delle Emozioni” (Fort of Emotions): a multi-sensory experience that shows what life was like for soldiers.

Lights, sounds, voices and a series of interactive installations reveal just how tough things were in the mountain forts and trenches. The names of the stages in the exhibition route are as follows: The Moving Model, The Sentries, The Howitzers of Sounds, The Eyes of Light, The Machine Gun Nest Diaries and the Angel of the Alpini Mountain Troops.
