Once, on the South Tyrolean Mount Monteneve there has been the highest permanent settlement of Europe. The ore deposit of the mining area extends in this mountain ridge from 2,000 to 2,500 m asl between the Val Passiria and the Val Ridanna in the Alta Valle Isarco. This is where several mines are located, some of them still functioning. These mines have been combined in a unique museum complex.
Today the Mining World Ridanna Monteneve is part of the South Tyrol Mining Museum, illustrating 800 years of mining history. Also a 200 m long show mine can be explored. The single steps of minery are represented here: the extraction, the treatment and the transport. During the guided visits the facilities are put in train for demonstration. The tour leads through the silver, lead and zinc mine Monteneve at an altitude from 1,400 to 2,700 m asl.
You can book different kinds of guided visits of varying duration from spring to autumn. In 2015 the Mining World Ridanna Monteneve was given 4.5 out of 5 stars by Tripadvisor.
