Hiking tour

Silberbergwerk Platzertal

Drive from Pfunds to Greit up to the Tscheylücke. From there the path leads through the beautiful high valley past the Maria Schnee chapel to a fork in the road. Here the path branches off to the right towards Platzertal. Follow the signposting always towards Platzer Alm. Pass the dilapidated buildings of the ore and silver processing and continue to the alpine pasture. Passing the alpine pasture you continue to the probably highest mine of the Alps. Here, lead, zinc, silver and copper were mined at an altitude of almost 3,000 m. 

Tip: Every Thursday a hiking bus drives to the Tschey (Registration required the day before!)
