Already 300 years ago was copper mined. In 1855 the mining in Radmer was ended and has been forgotten ever since. From 1966 is the Radmer Paradeisstollen with its associated route, shafts and mining from a handful of volunteers revitalized and opened to the public.

In a small guided tour, visitors get to know up close and personal about the exhausting work and the living conditions of the old copper miners. Even after such a long time are traces of the human effort in the mine insistently comprehended.

The drive to under-day begins with the smallest tunnel railway in Austria, a visitor train, which only exists once in this world and is an absolut adventure for the kids: adventure, time travel and a sustainable experience all at the same time. At the visit are plenty of opportunities to ask the visitor attendant questions.

As an encore is another showroom at the mine entrance to visit with numerous displayed treasures.
