Eisenerz' main attraction is its Erzberg ironworks, which can be seen up close on underground Schaubergwerk tours of the mine, abandoned in 1986, or alternatively on overground tours in a 'Hauly' truck along roads cut into the mountain. Both tours are usually in German, with English-language notes available. Each Thursday at 9am you can also ride up in a Hauly and watch the rock being exploded. The departure point is a 10-minute walk from the centre, following the course of the river.

Dress warmly for the 90-minute Schaubergwerk tours. There are fine views along the way of the 60-minute Hauly Abenteuerfahrt tours.
