In earlier times the Gurgltal valley was one of the most important mining areas in Tyrol. The nine authentically reproduced buildings in the ‘Knappenwelt Gurgltal’ mining village in Tarrenz provide an intriguing world of exploration and discovery.
Immerse yourself in the fascination of the world of mining and embark on a journey back in time! In addition, you can pay a visit to the permanent exhibition entitled ‘The Healer from Gurgltal’ which draws you into the realm of myths and legends that surrounds a woman who lived and carried out her ‘healing’ in the valley some 400 years ago.
You should plan in around 1 ½ hours for the museum. Special children’s afternoons, children’s birthdays and night-time guided tours for groups can be arranged on request.
