Author’s recommendation

The Bleiberger Knappenkultur was included in UNESCO's list of intangible cultural heritage in 2010. Since the end of mining in 1992, mostly private initiatives have been striving to preserve and pass on the associated cultural heritage, which includes the miners' language, the remaining old cutting galleries, the Bleiberger Knappenspiel, the Barbara Fair, the Ledersprung and other special features.
