In the world of mining in Ridnaun

The valley of Ridnaun starts its course near Sterzing in Valle Isarco, far from the busy hustle and bustle of the main roads of the region. Here in this quiet side valley in Ratschings, a nature paradise opens us and offers wide plains, gentle steeps and traditional mountain villages to hikers, winter sports enthusiasts and culture lovers. Here lies the mining world Ridnaun Schneeberg, where visitors can learn about the life of the miners who lived and worked here over hundreds of years ago.

During summer the nearby white marble-gorge in Stange offers unforgettable sights. The surrounding villages invite for markets, concerts and festivals; romantics at heart find here the possibility to travel on a horse-sled, or visit the medieval town of Sterzing, and the wonderful lantern-festival held on summer nights. The beautiful nature on the high plain and ski area Ratschings-Jaufen is a great destination for all those who want to experience nature while indulging in their favourite pastime.

An insider-tip is the Seven-Lake-Tour, a tour of about seven hours. The start is the parking place of the mining museum. From here the path leads up to the alpine pastures of „Moarerbergalm“ and further till the first lakes appear. Straight ahead and the next five lakes appear and the lodge of „Grohmann“. More information about the hikes in the area are available in the hotels in Ridnaun in South Tyrol.

In the adventure mine Schneeberg

The discovery of silver in Schneeberg is first documented in the beginning of the 13th century, about 200 years later the mining business reached its peak. Schneeberg became one of the most important mines in Europe. Besides it was the highest, which proofed especially difficult during winter. The shutdown mine serves today as show mine. During guides through the galleries the Silver Times of Tyrol come back to life once more. If you would like to experience the mine and all the other treasures of the valley, find here the most beautiful hotels in Ridnaun in the South Tyrolean valley of Eisacktal.
