Do you have specific questions or are you simply interested in general information on the Brenner Base Tunnel? Come visit us at our infopoints in Steinach a.Br. or Fortezza. We look forward to explaining the project and giving information on topics such as environmental protection, traffic policy or geology. Wall charts, models and videos show the tunnel route, provide information on the geological makeup of the rock mass and show the current status of the construction work.

BBT Tunnel World

The 800 m² exhibition is an attraction for the local population, both as the starting point for construction site tours and as a fun, hands-on exhibition. The tunnel exhibition is structured on two levels, including a display mine-shaft, many interactive exhibits for all visitors and a section for experts. Exciting and interesting information on tunnel construction, mountain geology, the history of the Brenner Pass, nature, the environment and the laws of physics are only a few of the topics covered by the exhibition.

Exhibition at Innsbruck Central Station

Information about the Brenner Base Tunnel Project and the Munich-Verona railway axis is available in a permanent exhibition housed in the southern part of the gallery at Innsbruck Central Station.

One exhibition, but there's always something new

Every three months, a new topic relating to the Brenner Base Tunnel and the Brenner axis is put in the spotlight. The first event was an exhibition on the BBT construction lot "Sill Gorge", located south of Innsbruck.The main focus of this permanent exhibition are nine back-lit photos, which every three months present a new project-related topic. The exhibition is equipped with interactive showcases providing information about the Brenner Base Tunnel Project and the Munich-Verona railway axis, on which the BBT is located.

Tunnel boring machines - the Giants in the depths of the mountain

Until the end of May, the spotlight will turn to the tunnel boring machines of the Brenner Base Tunnel in the Mules construction lot in Italy. This time around, visitors can get an impression of the outstanding tunnelling machines used for mechanical excavation of the BBT tunnel tubes, starting from the Mules construction site in Alto Adige towards the Brenner Pass.

There, two 200-metre-long TBMs, with the resounding names of "Flavia" and "Virginia", are excavating the main tunnels working their way up north. Until recently, three TBMs were operating here, as the third tube of the tunnel system - the exploratory tunnel - was also excavated mechanically. This excavation carried out by TBM "Serena" already reached the Brenner Pass last November.

Opening hours:
The exhibition is open every day between 6 AM and 10 PM.
Entrance is free of charge.


Infopoint in Fortezza

The Observatory for the Environment and Workplace Safety is in charge of the Infopoint in the Fortress of Fortezza. The main task of the Observatory is to oversee the construction work in Italy as regards compliance with quality criteria for environmental protection and safety in the workplace.
As of July 2016, the Infopoint includes a 200 m2 exhibition on the Brenner Base Tunnel. Besides providing information on the project, it is also the starting point for tours of the construction site.
