Observation platform & Knappensteig trail

The Kaunertal valley impresses with a kingdom of 3000-m peaks, wild and serene nature, culture and magical places. One of the latter is most definetely the "Adlerblick" observation platform and the Knappensteig , which leads us into a bygone era ....

Observation platform "Adlerblick"

The platform was constructed on a cliff 100 meters above Feichten in Kaunertal. Furthermore, hikers also enter a journey into the past by choosing the trails leading to the newly constructed lookout point "Bergwerksblick" (mine site view) and the circular trail to the mining galleries and the miner`s lodge. These are all accessible from the forest road towards Verpeilalm. Hiking time from Feichten about 1 hour.

Silver mining in Kaunertal

Follow in the tracks of the historic minors! Centuries ago, Kaunertal was home to many diligent miners who came for the rich silver and copper deposits in these mountains. Put on a hardhat, grab a flashligth and try to knock out some ore from the rock in an autehentic mining adit. Enjoy your brought snack at the processing place in the company of friendly two miners.

Tip: Circular trail (ca. 2 hours hike) combined with a visit to the abservation platform (Knappensteig trail - surefootedness and head for heights required)

Valley Museum: If you are interesting in learning more about the miners and their tools, visit the valley Museum in Platz.
