Gold mine, show dairy & wildlife park
Take part in one of the great adventures of past centuries. Feel how the inside of the mountain lives and experience 350 years of culture of this almost forgotten branch of industry in an impressive multimedia presentation in the tunnel. Get an impression of the working conditions underground, the miners’ lifestyle and their social environment. The excursion starts at the Hochzeller Käsealm on the Hainzenberg (3 km above Zell am Ziller in the direction of Gerlos). It takes about two hours, including a visit to the historically important sites and the system of tunnels.
Gold panning camp on the Hainzenberg
Gold panning is one of the oldest methods of extracting gold particles. At our gold panning camp on the Hainzenberg, ore that contains gold from our mountains is filled into a pan with water and then swirled round to sort out the gold.
The price includes the visit to the gold mine, return transport on the Zillertal Goldexpress (slow train), guided tour of the cheese dairy with a small tasting session and a visit to the wildlife park.
