The miner's path into the Röttal
Mining museum Prettau - Bergstöckl - Rötalm - Brugger Hütte - Mining museum
As we walk along the “Knappensteig” path, passing by entrances to old mine galleries, we take a journey into the past and a time when the extraction of ore was just beginning. Above the tree line, we feast upon a richly diverse mountainous world — in one of the country’s most beautiful high valleys. The widespread distribution of the alpine cabins demonstrates the cultural imprint of people over centuries. The interesting remnants of glaciers can be seen in the form of old moraines at the “Röt” – and “Merb”alm cabin.
Take the signpost “mining path” from the Mining Museum right up to the “Rötalm” cabin (2,116 m). Take a narrow path to the „Brugger Alm” cabin then to the “Merbalm” cabin and on to the “Innerbichl Alm” hut. From there go back towards the starting point. Rest stop: Rötalm
