The Mining Museum Schneeberg in Ridnaun is part of the South Tyrolean mining museum, which consists of five museum structures. The ore deposits of Schneeberg is located at an altitude of 2000-2500 meters and runs through the ridge. The economic use was first mentioned in 1237 and is based on extensive silver finds. 70 tunnels, where more than 1,000 people worked, were already created here 1500. Today in the mining museum you can get an impression of the life of the workers and of the previous situation in the South Tyrolean mining.
The two museums are located in the former hospital in Sterzing and were brought together here. The building complex is located next to the parish church of “Our Lady of the Moss” and served the Teutonic Knights in the 13th century as a hostel. Today it houses the town’s museum, which tells interesting facts and stories about the former Fugger city. The Multscher museum, however, is devoted to a person, the Meisterhans Multscher, which comes from Ulm. Among other things, here there is a late Gothic altar, which is a true masterpiece in its class. On the altarpieces pictures of the Passion of Christ and the Life of Mary are represented.
