Historic city tour
On the trail of silver
Special flair at every turn
It was thanks to the mining of silver that the city of Schwaz developed into the second largest city in Austria in the Middle Ages - after Vienna.
Professionally managed cultural experience
Local guides accompany you through the alleyways and corners of the Silver City, leading you to hidden places and make the time of the past in the truest sense of the word felt. Hidden places are in the Schwazer old town quite a few. These special places remained hidden to the public until recently. They open their doors just for the occasion and form the highlights of the newly designed city tour. The roof truss of the parish church Maria Himmelfahrt is only one of the ten worth seeing stations of the free city tour.
