- "View through the Tauern Window" -
A new geology theme trail in Untersulzbachtal
The geology theme trail known as the "View through the Tauern Window" leads from Gasthof Schütthof and alongside the imposing Untersulzbach Waterfall Natural Monument, to the historical Hochfeld copper mine.
Info points along this new National Park theme trail provide easily understood insights into the creation of the Hohe Tauern mountains, their geological structure as well as the cultural and historical development of ore and mineral mining in Untersulzbachtal.
Having arrived at the site of the former Hochfeld copper mine, visitors are introduced to the world of mining in former times, as they are the geological development of the Hohe Tauern through history.
The reconstructed and lovingly furnished Miners' Room, as well as the renovated historical mine buildings in the area of the Old Blacksmith's and Kitchens close to the Martinsteg, are true highlights of this fascinating theme path.
This geology path can be explored on your own from May until the end of October, depending on weather conditions. It is also possible to walk 130 meters deep into the mine itself, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. until the end of September.
Total walking time: ca. 45 minutes. No admission charges.
