The Way of the Miners

The Way of the Miners

A tour for those with stamina.

The tour runs from the Museum site via the mountain slope, steep in places, via gallery mouths and huts up to the Rötkreuz mountain with its ore outcrops, then further to the Rötalm with its impressive peat bog and views of the main ridge of the Zillertaler Alps and its 3000-metre peaks.

The way up from the valley floor to the gallery mouths below the Rötalm was for centuries part of the daily workload of the miners, who would drive galleries into the mountainside in search of ore, crushing the rock in huts. The miners’ trail can be followed without a guide. It is marked 11A or follow the signs, a sledgehammer and pick on a white background.
