War museum

The Belvedere fortress in Lavarone houses the war museum of the Trentino region.

From the originally seven fortresses of the Austro-Hungarian fortress wall of the high-altitude plateau of Folgaria and Lavarone, only the Belvedere castle has stood the test of the fascist destructiveness of the thirties. Werk Gschwent is in a way built into the rocks, on an elevation above the Val d’Astico valley.

Today in the interior of the Belvedere fortress, there is a museum that is dedicated to the happenings in WW I in the province of Trentino-South Tyrol.
