Where can I park?
There is a free parking lot directly in front of the museum area.
Can I eat in Prettau - Which restaurants are recommended?
There is a restaurant directly adjacent to the museum - the Ignazstube. The food is good. Since the restaurant is not very big, it can get crowded quickly at peak times. Then we recommend driving a few more kilometers in the direction of Kasern. There is a large parking lot and from there you can reach the Talschlusshütte after a very nice walk of about 20 minutes.
Alternatively, you can drive from Prettau back to Steinhaus, there you will find another very good restaurant: Stochas food & drink.
When is the Mining Museum open?
The mining museum is open from mid-May to the end of October
