The Salzkammergut region and its miners: this is a connection that has existed from time immemorial and, with the term “Hallstatt period”, marks an entire era. This tradition will be preserved and celebrated with the European Miner & Alpine Shelter Day in Bad Ischl. 2,000 to 3,000 participants from all over Europe are expected: miner’s associations, especially from the mining regions in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic and France will be there and celebrate together. A diverse schedule of ancillary programming and a parade by the mining associations on Sunday through Bad Ischl provide an invitation to join the celebrations.
