Historical Mine in Villanders

The holiday destination Villanders in the valley Eisacktal, nearby the beautiful town Klausen, offers besides idyllic landscapes and numerous hiking paths also exciting sights. One of these is the historical mine at Pfunderer mountain!

The mine in Villanders has a very long and eventful history. The first time the mine was mentioned in the middle of the 12th century. In the Middle Ages one of the most important mining areas of Tyrol, they mined especially silver, copper and lead, although in the rocks of the Pfunders mountains more than 75 different minerals were found.

After going through heydays, barren years and many different owners, the mine in valley Eisacktal was closed at the beginning of the 20th century and was forgotten at last. In the year 1997 the association of local museums started to restore the mine to open it for visitors.

The mine offers information about the time of our hard-working forefathers. The guided tour offers a lot of interesting information about ore mining and provides an insight into the 23 km long system consisting of historical and new tunnels.

Guided tours take place from April to November each Tuesday and Thursday at 10.30 am and 2.30 pm (on Sundays at 10.30 am). The visitors should arrive at the mine a quarter of an hour before the guided tour.
