Geopark “Ore of the Alps”
Around Bischofshofen, mining was done more than 500 years ago. The Geopark “Ore of the Alps” is always worth a visit. Together with the neighbouring towns of Huttau, Mühlbach and St. Veit it has been recognised by UNESCO. The exciting history of ore mining, its development, and the importance for the region are shown in a particularly interesting way in the Geopark. All four locations are connected by the copper trail. This scenic hiking trail runs from town to town and to the respective museums and show mines. The visitors centre in Bischofshofen is regarded as the best starting point – the excursion starts with important information in the luggage.
