    Welcome to the Knappenwelt

    The Gurgltal and the surrounding valleys of the Tyrolean highlands used to be one of the most important mining areas in central Europe.

    The Knappenwelt – A destination for young and old. In the Knappenwelt we highlight the process of separating the ore from the mined stone. You will see how this was achieved on our real life 16th century models.

    In 2008 the Gurgltal’s healer was found in the town part of Strad. Archeological speaking it was one of the most impressive finds of the last decade. The remains of a 40-year-old woman who lived during the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648) were found and are now on display in the house of the healer.
