From the 18th century to the early 20th century, the village of Recht was a centre of bluestone mining. Today, the 8-km bluestone hiking trail is reminiscent of the one-time significance of this blue-grey shale. Although the route is shorter in the visitors’ mine itself, a very special experience awaits you. Make your way underground while wearing helmets. The 800-m round trip through galleries and mining halls conveys an image of the hard and dangerous life of the miners in their day-to-day work.

Tricky questions are raised en route: How did the slate arise in Recht? What role did stonemasons from Tirol play for the village? And what do sharks and frogs have in common with Recht bluestone? You can look forward to hearing the fascinating answers. Guided tours by appointment.

Last admissions at 4 p.m.
Closed on Mondays (except public holidays).
