Informationen zu South Tyrol Museum of Mining - Mining World Ridnaun Schneeberg
On the Schneeberg mountain, the highest mine in Europe has been nearly completely preserved. What is therefore also unique in all of Europe is the comprehensive view of 800 years of lasting mining history. In Ridnaun (Ridanna), the 200 m. (200 yard) exhibition shaft shows ore removal methods from the Middle Ages up to the present day. Here, the original equipment from the 1920s, which is still capable of functioning today, provides a realistic impression of the ore processing. The history of mining and the life of the miners are documented in the worker’s residence. The visit turns into an adventure with a seven hour tour by day or a complete day tour (ten hours) on the Schneeberg mountain. The area on the Passeier Valley side consists of the miner’s settlement St. Martin am Schneeberg (2,355 m. / 7,726 ft.) and the former mine area. The manor house and the old miner’s house were converted into a hiker’s refuge with 100 bed spaces. The old smithy houses an exhibition area. Various hikes and tours are also offered from this side of the mining area.
The Mining Museum Schneeberg Ridnaun is one of the highest mines in Europe.
