Smelter museum and silver mine

Ore used to mined in Lungau several hundred years ago. Today just a few places steeped in history remind us of this, for example the Bundschuh Smelter Museum. Iron ore used to be extracted in Bundschuh. Today you can find a museum that has brought the iron production of bygone days back to life again. Besides the smelter museum, you can also find a mine that reminds us of this era with the Ramingstein Silver Mine. Nowadays, there are guided tours through the tunnels. Children and youngsters in particular make holiday memories here that turn their holiday into an adventure holiday.
