The Ridanna Mine - Monteneve

Below the mountain crest that separates Val Passiria from Val Ridanna, the Ridanna mine, which was re-opened in 1985, gives you the opportunity to experience the world of medieval mining up close. Since the 11th century, silver, lead and zinc have been mined from Monteneve. In its heyday in around 1500 approx. 1,000 miners brought great riches to the Fugger town of Vipiteno. In the re-opened showroom of the mine you can follow the entire production chain and view the still-working facilities.
