Guided tour of the Schwaz silver mine

By mine railway into the mine
Deep in the silver mine, a 90-minute guided tour will give you a fascinating insight into the important role played by Schwaz during the Middle Ages, when miners prospected the mine for silver and copper. The temperature in the mine is a constant 12 degrees – we recommend that you wear good shoes and appropriate clothing. There is space for about 40 people on the mine railway, which takes you 800 metres down.
