Display Mine in the Schwarzleo Valley
The mine is located about four kilometres away from the museum and shows the practical aspects of mining, thus being the perfect addition to the Mining and Gothic Museum Leogang. There are combination tickets for museum and display mine.
The prince-archbishopric of Salzburg was one of the richest European principalities due to its mines in Leogang, gold mines in Gastein and Rauris and salt mines in Hallein.
Over 3.200 years ago, Celtic miners had already driven tunnels into the Leogang mountains. In the Middle Ages, the blooming period of mining in Leogang, silver was mined with which Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach had the famous Salzburg silver coins minted over 500 years ago.
Today, the tunnels where miners once produced valuable minerals are open to the public, and families can experience thrilling adventures there. You can walk through one kilometre of the medieval tunnel system with experienced guides, passing mining tools, mystic grottos and wooden ladders.
Starting and ending point of the display mine is the mining tavern „Unterberghaus“ where guests love to dine after a fascinating walk through the Barbara and Daniel tunnels. Visiting the tavern run by the Gruber family tops off your adventure in the Schwarzleo Valley.
Enjoy a fascinating time travel to the world of medieval miners. Take a mine tour in Leogang and learn about its glorious mining history.
