Silver mine Schwazer Silberbergwerk

IMG_0051 IMG_0466

I will move away from the traditional display of salt mines and talk about the mine with silver.  It takes about 1.5 hours (147 km) to get from Bad Reichenhall and is located very close to the Tratzberg castle. You can combine these two attractions in one trip.

Address: Alte Landstraße 3a, 6130 Schwaz

Website:  The silver mine in Schwaz  

from May to September works from 9,00 until 17,00; from October to April from 10,00 until 16,00 o'clock. The cost of the visit: adults - 18 euros, teenagers (15-18 years) - 16 euros, children (5-24 years) - 11 euros, family ticket 2 adults+1 child - 41 euros, every next child -9 euros, 1 adult + 1 child - 25 euros, children under 4 years - free.

It is this mine that is called the "mother of all mines", and it is this mine that has become the source of Tyrol's wealth. You will descend into the mine to a depth of 800 meters and get acquainted with the working conditions and everyday life of miners, see a real miracle of the 16th century, a wheel for lifting ore to the surface, driven by water.. At the exit, you can buy a great souvenir at a local silver store.
