At an altitude of 2,355 m, the mining village on Schneeberg/Monte Neve is easily accessible – but only on foot. With its 800-year history, a unique landscape and gastronomic delights, the Schneeberg remains a highly-frequented tourist destination. In fact, the "Schneeberg" doesn't refer to a "mountain" as such – but rather to the whole mining complex. To the locals in the Passeiertal Valley, "Schneeberg" mainly refers to St. Martin/S. Martino's mining village that includes a mountain refuge with a restaurant and the Adventure mine; now a tourist attraction.
