Fascinating Stories

One of these is undoubtedly the mining history of Schladming.
First chronicled in the year 1180, it acquired a town charter in 1322. It prospered from mining activity in the Schlad­ming­er Tau­ern mountains, where as many as 1500 miners were employed. They were digging for silver, zinc, lead, copper and, later on, cobalt and nickel. The demands of farmers, peasants and miners for more rights, along with excessive taxation, led to a revolt of the peasants and miners. As a result, Schlad­ming lost its town charter and was ultimately completely burned to the ground. However, because Schlad­ming was of such great commercial importance as a mining town, it was rebuilt and once again granted market rights in 1530.
