The Schneeberg mountain was the longest-worked silver, lead and zinc mine in the Alps and is still almost entirely preserved. The insight provided into 800 years of mining history is thus unique, with exhibition galleries, mule paths, braking inclines, ore bins, horses and modern ropeways, as well as a Workers’ House for the miners. Working machines in the ore treatment plant show the complex process of ore separation. A varied programme of events provides an authentic insight into the world of mining.
