Die Schmelzi bei Nacht

A historic smelting plant at Ausserferrera.


For centuries, raw materials such as iron and ore helped the Ferrera and Schamser valleys to a certain prosperity. Today the mines are closed. However, the contemporary witnesses are still visible today.

The Verein Erzminen Hinterrhein ensures that these contemporary witnesses can be rediscovered in the Bergbaumuseum in Innerferrera and on guided excursions.

Opening hours

The smelting plant is open to the public.
