Two South Tyrolean valleys, the Ridnaun Valley and Passeier Valley, have always played a key role in the history of the Schneeberg Mine. The mining activity was a world that moved at its own pace, shaping the life of the valleys in their most flourishing times. Mining left indelible marks not only on the landscape, but also on the local people and their way of life. It is not only a museum but the opportunity to experience the unique mining world and see with your own eyes the hard work of the miners.
