Sightseeing | Taufer Ahrntal

Not to worry...even on rainy days the Taufer Ahrntal has lots to offer; museums, the Prettau mine, "Kornkasten" (mining museum), mineral museum, crib museum ("Maranatha"), and Castle Taufers...

Taufers Castle

Schloss Taufers

Dynastic castle of the rulers of Taufers, built up into a spacious residential castle during the 15th and 16th century, it has been owned by the South Tirolean Castles Institute since 1977.


Mining Museum


Copper was mined for more than five hundred years in Prettau in the Ahrntal. The administrative centre for the mine was in Steinhaus. The Steinhaus Mining Museum has been situated in the corn barns, the food store for the mine, since autumn 2000.


Crib Museum


The name for the Crib Museum "Maranatha" comes from Aramaic, Jesus’ mother tongue, and means: "Our Lord is coming!"

Holy Spirit Church

Heilig Geist Kirche

The church is situated at the furthest reaches of Ahrntal, leaning against a large rock. It was built around 1455, and was enlarged and converted to its current form in the 16th century.


Prettau Mine and the Climatic Gallery
