The Glanzenberg Mine

The first written mention of the Glanzenberg Mine dates from 1560. It played an important role in the beginnings of gold and silver ore mining on the Špitaler vein below the Glanzenberg hill, after which it was named. In the later period, when its drainage function was taken over by other tunnels, it was used for transport, ventilation and shepherding of technicians.

In 2003, approximately 500 meters at a depth of 32 meters were made available to the public. The tour ends at the Kaufhaus shaft, where the “imperial stairs” carved into stone are located. They connect it with the Upper Holy Trinity Tunnel located below. Several commemorative plaques are placed in these spaces in honor of the visit of important monarchs. In 1751, František Štefan Lorraine visited it, the last monarch was Emperor František Jozef I. After the reconstruction in 2001, the tradition of visits by important personalities was renewed.
