    Mines in South Tyrol

    Have you ever seen a mine from the inside? Unforgettable experiences for the entire family await at South Tyrol’s visitor mines. For example, head to the adventure mine in Villanders/Villandro to witness what was once one of the most important mining areas in all of Tyrol. Alternatively, for a diverse and unforgettable impression of the history of mining, stop by the worthwhile South Tyrol Museum of Mining, a network of five individual museums.

    Industrial plant in the high mountains

    A unique monument to industrial revolution

    The Ridnaun site is a unique monument to the industrial revolution. Here, 150 years ago, a state-of-the-art ore processing plant was created, with huge machines to break and crush the rock and large flotation pools to convey the ores to the surface. Impressive braking inclines and horse tracks form part of what is the world’s largest above-ground conveyor, leading to the ore district high up in the mountains. The Poschhaus Gallery bores 6 km diagonally through the mountain into the Passeier Valley.
    Silver Mine Villanders
    Klausen/Chiusa, Brixen/Bressanone and environs

    The „Pfunderer mine“ of Villandro was one of the most significant mining areas in Tyrol in medieval times. However, the mine was forgotten at the beginning of the 20th century. Due to the working of the cultic and museum association of Villandro the mine has been renovated in the last years and is open to the public now.
