Welcome to Mining!
Due to its low elevation at 348 meters above sea level, snow is not a given here. On cold winter days ice curling makes for a fun afternoon out. Afterwards you can warm up with a cup of steaming punch or mulled wine in one of the local inns.
Mining boasts a superb Mineral Museum with over 100 different minerals on display, among them an amethyst geode which, at 1.411kg, is one of the world’s largest. There is also a mineral specialist store inside the museum.
