Winter break 2021/22

The four locations of the Mining Museum say goodbye and are closing for winter break. 
The work behind the scenes will continue and the preparations for next season are already underway. We look forward to opening again for you on 14th April 2022.
Glückauf! (Good luck!, i.e. a miner's greeting)

South Tyrol Museum of Mining

The South Tyrol Museum of Mining with 4 Locations - Schneeberg, Ridnaun, Prettau and Steinhaus

The South Tyrol Mining Museum has four sites and many faces: mine railways that run deep into the mountainside, medieval galleries, deafening ore crushing operations, kilometre-long horse tracks, vertically sloping braking inclines and towering slag heaps; in addition there are educational trails through ore districts, noble tradesmen’s halls, Europe’s highest permanent settlement, and a climate gallery. It is an underground world of adventure, where the mountains hoard their greatest treasures.
