Silver Mine Schwaz
The "Mother of all Mines" promises you an exciting journey into the history of Europe. The largest silver mine of the Middle Ages is "THE" attraction in Tirol and is open to the public until the 14th November.
After an 800 metre journey on the mine train into the bowels of the earth, a unique underground experience awaits. Follow in the footsteps of miners that dug for silver and copper over 500 years ago and immerse yourself in a time when when the earth was still thought to be a flat disc...
Discover interesting details on Europe"s financial and social development, as well as fascinating statistical information on the way of life in these times.
Especially on hot summer days, you will find the welcome coolness of the Silver Mine particularly refreshing. The insides of the mine enjoy a constant temperature of 12 degrees Celcius.
The Schwaz Silver Mine is also the perfect choice for a day out on bad weather days - you don"t get wet inside the mountain!
Open all year round, apart from mid November to the 25.12.2012 when it will be closed for maintenance work.
