Located on the site of the former magnesite mine on the Schrofenalm (1,700 m), the Barbara Chapel is a nicely proportioned chapel erected in 1953 above Vorderlanersbach in honour of Saint Barbara, the patron saint of the miners. The impressive wall fresco by the entrance was painted by Max Weiler.
Tyrol's highest (1,740 m) peasant museum is at the Höllensteinhütte. The tools and working equipment (wooden plough along with other tools) reveal the hard life of the mountain farmers in Tux. The display includes complete ropemaking equipment and various minerals found around the TUx alps. A one hour walk from Lanersbach. Admission to the museum is free.
Mountain cheese dairy
The "Stoankasern" hut at an altitude of 1,984 m is an attractive destination in a wild and romantic high alpine valley, surrounded by pastures and slopes of alpine rose. The roughly 2 1/2 hour climb from Juns or Lanersbach is worth the effort. Every morning from the mid of June to the mid of October you can see milk been worked into butter and cheese. This mountain cheese dairy stores whole cheeses weighing between 40 and 50 kg. And of course you can taste the fresh alpine butter and cheese at the place of production, and enjoy a glass of buttermilk.
Mehlerhaus in Madseit
The Mehlerhaus was built in the 17th century, and has been restored by the District of Tux with the assistance of the local population to create a cultural and a small museum. The farm was lived in until 1992 and contains beautiful wooden Stuben and the kitchen that once formed the focal point of peasant life. The Mehlerhaus is open every Monday from 14.00 to 17.00 - mid July to mid September.
