Upper miners’ circular route

On the way of the squires and Celts

The Upper Miners’ Loop Trail at Dürrnberg is short and informative. Especially hikers who are interested in mining will pass by places that are steeped in history. There are several mouth holes on the theme trail, for example. Do you know what that is? In miners’ language, it’s the name given to the entrance to a tunnel.

The mystical entrances, to which signs draw attention, in a fairy-tale natural setting certainly have something mysterious about them. Old trees, clearings and streams complete the experience. Along the way you will also find the Georgenberg gallery, which has been known since 1616 as the site of a Celtic miner. The tour is exciting all around, family-friendly and is also considered a connecting route to the Lower Knappensteig.
