Informationen zu South Tyrol Museum of Mining - Site Ridnaun

The Ridnaun site, which began life 150 years ago, is a unique monument to the industrial revolution. The ore processing plant at Maiern possessed what was the most modern technology of the time: functioning machines allow visitors to experience the entire production process. What is probably the world’s longest overground conveyor system, consisting of brake inclines and horse-drawn rail lines, runs high into the mountains and into the tunnels of the Schneeberg, while the large flotation basins and giant machines give an idea both of the enormous size and the huge difficulties of mining ore and take visitors on a journey back in time to the industrialisation of mining.
