Description:
At the beginning, a small showroom provides insight into the 50-year history of the former coal mining industry. The newly built gallery carpentry at the mouth of the "Klausriedlstollen" and 22 display boards along this miners' path show the economic importance of mining, the living and working situation and the social conditions of the miners and their families.

Trail number: E47



Directions:
From the Restaurant RAU, walk about 200 m on the road towards Großraming, then turn left and climb towards the Kohlgraben saddle under the Rabenreithkogel. This way you will not only reach several Bingen (funnel-shaped depressions caused by the collapse of the Rainer-, Klausriedl-, Barbara-, Franz- and Ignazstollen), but also the site of a coal washing plant and a miner's house, dumps with dewy rock, a prospecting test from the time after the Second World War and a pond, whose cool water has seeped away never to be seen again due to the underground activities.

In addition, one learns a lot about the geology of the area, the ownership or where the names of the tunnels came from, from the mining patron saint Barbara or from that farm whose products fed the miners.


Beautiful fruit tree meadows round off the pleasures of the hike, and at the end nature puts on a geological show: the moss-covered granite cliffs of the Buch Monument, named after the earth scientist Leopold von Buch (1774-1853), lie like stone cuckoo eggs in the limestone of the foothills of the Alps. Why? Presumably they were torn out of the subsoil during the folding of the Alps.


The short trail variant leads north of the Kohlgraben back down the valley, the longer one moves with the marking No. 6 in the saddle between Höhen- and Arthofberg, then turns left in the direction of Buchschachen or Waldbauer and includes also the worth seeing fuchsia exhibition of the Schwarzlmüller family.



Tip:
Buch Denkmal: The moss-covered granite cliffs named after the earth scientist Leopold von Buch (1774-1853) lie like stone cuckoo eggs in the limestone of the foothills of the Alps. Why? Presumably they were torn out of the subsoil during the folding of the Alps.
