The Zillertaler Goldschaubergwerk (gold mine Zillertal) is a sort of theme park. The tour starts at the Schaukäserei (cheese production), then the mine with multimedia equipment is visited, on the way back the visitor ride a sort of train, and finally they can visit the zoo. All in all this is a fine thing for children, so it is at least half a day of entertainment for families.
