The Nickel Museum in the Upper Valley
The only preserved historical smelting furnace in the Eastern Alps.
Hard and challenging was the life of the miners around the nickel mining in the Upper Valley.
Within this virtual tour, the diversity of the metal nickel opens up.
What was made of the precious metal in the past and what nickel is used for today.
One thing has not changed: in many cases it is invisible, but nevertheless indispensable.
A ruin as a witness to a long past mining history, a "glass showcase in the midst of the impressive natural landscape" of the Schladminger Tauern.
A journey through time that takes visitors back to times gone by, when this past was still alive - all this is on display at the Nickel Museum in the Hopfriesen.
The unique relic, the nickel smelting furnace itself, becomes the main exhibit in the museum. The museum building - designed as a walk-in showcase in the middle of the landscape - draws visitors' attention to and arouses their curiosity about the past and - through the presentation of current nickel products - also builds bridges to the present.
The museum allows insights, raises questions and invites visitors to walk through the past and connect what they have seen with the present ...
Welcome to the virtual experience, as a digital bridge to the real visit to the Nickel Museum Obertal.
