Where ore and art meet

The Mining and Gothic Museum in Leogang is a unique museum that presents the history of mining and Gothic in the Salzburg region.

The highlights include the prayer nut of Mary of Burgundy, a precious reliquary from the 15th century, the Limoges cross of the Czartoryski princely family, a 900-year-old enamel work of art, and the altar of Prösels Castle, a masterpiece by Dürer's student Hans Schäuffelein.
