A few kilometres outside Innsbruck lies the small village of Schwaz which seems to keep a sparkling secret of hidden old Silver Mine. The management loads you onto a mini-train catering for 10 people and takes you a mile underground. The train stops every few hundred metres to hear a conductor (foreign language headsets are available at each stop) explain the history of silver mining in this area. It is definitely an experience and worth a visit. The silver mine is the only in Austria open to the public, this is a fascinating experience.
