We are glad that the mines wherever they are have been preserved so that the public can have an insight of how a mine looks like inside. Also the presentation was super informative and the figures well done. The 17 euros pp...ok.

Going down the silver mine for a tour is an interesting experience for children and adults and gives some insight into a bit of history of the area. Not recommended for the claustrophobic, though! Parking was available. There is also a good lunch place opposite...More

Traveling in November (from Mittenwald to Hallstatt, this was an interesting stop an hour from Mittenwald), we took advantage of the dearth of crowds!

The train ride into the mountain took a good 10 minutes and was a bit eerie. The tour itself was very interesting, a good insight to see what it was like to mine the silver and other minerals in the 15th century and beyond. I...More
