The International Geological Mining Park of Raibl with its old mine, can be visited on board of a small electricity conducted train. The village is situated 900 metres above sea-level, between Monte Re, Monte Cinque Punte and the Lake of Raibl. It is surrounded by bushy beech and spruce fir forests, pastures and rocks, a unique landscape in Italy.
The Park is a touristic and educational destination for groups interested in discovering a less well-known area on the Italian territory, rich with history and deeply rooted traditions. The Park hosts one of the most important lead and zinc mines in Europe: discovered in the Roman era, it was active from the XVIII century until 1990, and has now become an eco-museum. The guided tour includes an electric train ride and lasts around 1 hour. It is a trip inside Earth, to discover minerals, extraction techniques, but most of all to understand the struggles of thousands of miners who have worked in its insides for centuries.
