Mining Technology

A compact overground tour for those interested in technology.

From the outdoor mine railway station a short walk leads up to the reconstructed stamping mill and the mouth of the historic St. Nikolaus gallery. An entertaining and informative tour.

Stamping mills were used for crushing and grinding the ore transported above ground. The reconstructed stamping mill on the Prettau site is started up for illustrative purposes during the guided compact tour. The medieval hewing techniques used are clearly visible at the mouth of the St. Nikolaus gallery.
 
Duration of tour: 1 hr. Booking not required. Minimum number of participants: 8 persons. Suitable for all those capable of walking. Sturdy footwear recommended.
