Ridnaun and the mining industry

When coming today to this uniquely beautiful and tranquil resort, you wouldn’t suspect that Ridnaun / Ridanna had been dominated for centuries by mining activities. Until the 1980s, silver, lead, and especially zinc were extracted from the Earth here in one of Europe's highest mines. The ore deposits were located at an altitude of 2,000 to 2,650 meters above sea-level at the Schneeberg / Monteneve, the mountain ridge that separates the Ridnaun / Ridanna Valley from the Passiria Valley. For about a thousand years, the Schneeberg / Monteneve was one of the most important mines in Europe, and only the European mining crisis finally forced it to close down in 1985.


Ridnaun has much more to offer!

There is something about the Wolfsthurn Castle, the only unmodified Baroque castle in South Tyrol. It is home to the South Tyrol Museum of Hunting and Fishing. The Miner's Church of St. Magdalene in Gasse or the St. Lawrence Church in Maiern / Masseria are of historic and cultural importance. Furthermore, there's the nearby ancient town of Sterzing / Vipiteno, the castle of Reifenstein and the Eisack / Isarco Valley with the bishop's city of Brixen / Bressanone and the famous Neustift / Novacella Monastery.
