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.
