    Another good experience. The guide spoke little Italian, but couldn't figure out. We dressed and with helmet and raincoat and we sccesi in mine with a little train with a funny route, at least for us. The route follows the old galleries of Illuminators that are accessed with stairs. The visit was entirely in Italian because our entire group was made up of Italians, even the projections on the rock were in Italian. The explanations were comprehensive. Worth the price paid by €17! If you are in the area to visit absolutely!

    Early to go to the silver mine in Schwaz. We were around 9.15 a.m. at the cash register and went with the first tour with it. With a helmet on and a silver jacket to go down the mine in. With a train you go 800 metres in the cave. It is very narrow, low and very moist. At the terminus, we are shown around by the Guide. He is only 12 degrees in the mine and it blows constantly. So please bring a sweater or on. You get good explanation and with movie clips and audio fragments, they'll do everything good. You can also listen in other languages via phone calls that tell the text in your language. After 1.5 hours you come again from the mine. At the cash register was already an entire row. Go early is so a tip.

    Of course, silver and salt are not comparable, but here in Schwaz Berchtesgaden could cut off more than a disc. First our "Director" Barbara. Big compliment. Also on the last tour of the day she sprayed ESPRIT and joy on their activities so that the spark jumped over immediately. Their remarks were very interesting, instructive and entertaining. It was also indicated by the many questions that came from the children. The construction of the mine is great through the "work scenes", which are incorporated in the niche - especially the moving "hewers", which tells a witty story about the removal of silver. The input and exit are somewhat "creepy", because it's pretty closely to, but also that among the positive overall impression. I have the best until now four mines... This is visited by far. And a hefty salary boost grins to the Barbara *.

    Really very interesting and informative. Good guide and organization of excursions. It's really a bit extreme to ride trolleys. I would not recommend children under 3 years old, retired, pregnant, and fat people. Small children can be scared, the elderly to take care of their health, pregnant shakes on trailers, for people large - very narrow and low passages.

    So interesting! If you are near Schwaz, you have to go and see the mines!

    The best. Imagine Disney didn't have rules or really cared if you slam yourself into a rickety boxcar humping the back of the person in front of you, slimed together by the precipitate from thousands of feet of rock above you pouring down, and rocketing down through around and around this defunct silver mine...Amazing! If the theme music from Indiana Jones isn't thundering in your subconscious... It should be. It is highly, highly, highly controlled/staged but the trolley ride in/out makes it worth it by itself...

    Interesting place to visit and learn some of the history about silver mining and how it affected the region and even wider areas.
