wildschönauer show mine in Thierbach

Lehenlahn show mine

Closed in summer 2023

Hidden in the forest on the outskirts of the village of Thierbach in the Wildschönau lies an old silver mine, which documents the life of the former miners as a show mine.
In the past, the miners made their way through the galleries with hammers and irons.
After a 130-year break, the old silver mine tunnel has been opened and invites visitors to embark on a historical journey.
Deep in the gallery, you can learn interesting facts about the life of the miners in the days of silver and copper mining.

Deep in the mountain there is a lot to see:

  •   Medieval gallery labyrinth
  •   Fairy tale gallery for children
  •   Description of the professions
  •   Realistic information about the life and work of miners underground
  •   Exhibition of tools (forge)
  •   Presentation of the mining methods
  •   Various mine carpentry
  •   SPECIAL SHOW: "Gems from Tirol's mountains"
  •   The absolute highlight for children is the fairy tale mountain: There the old trades are explained in detail and the tools are exhibited.
