Brenner Base Tunnel Info Centre

The 800m² information centre at the Brenner Basis Tunnel invites visitors to learn all about what goes into building the world's longest railway tunnels. Fun and fascinating for all ages!

How many holes must be drilled and how much explosive material is needed to blast through the rock deep below the surface and create the world's longest railway tunnel? Questions such as these are answered in a fun and interactive way at the Brenner Base Tunnel Info Centre in Steinach, where visitors are invited to have a go themselves at being a tunnel engineer. All in all there are seven separate sections of the exhibition all about the geology of the Alps, surveying, construction, the history of the Brenner Pass and the local environment. There is also an adventure area designed for children.

The Brenner Base Tunnel is currently being constructed between Innsbruck and the town of Franzensfeste in South Tirol/Alto Adige, Italy. It is planned to open in 2026 and will be the longest railway tunnel in the world. Including the existing southern diversion around Innsbruck it will run for a total of 64 kilometres.
