Welcome to Butte, the “richest hill on earth”, as locals
often boast. When you get into town for the first time, you will
quickly find that Butte is more than just an ordinary town. At
the end of the 19th century, the world's most productive copper
mine was located here, and gold and silver were mined
nearby. Around 1920 Butte was the largest city in Montana with
around 60,000 inhabitants. Mining continued to play an important
role until the mid-1980s.
Today, tourism is the city's main source of income, due to
the many well-preserved mine buildings and the famous Berkeley
Pit, a former copper mine. On tours that take you to the main
sites of the mining era, you will learn a lot about Butte's
past, present and future.
The charming city itself also thrills with shops, cafés and
restaurants. To the east of the village are the ringing rocks,
which sound when you hit them gently with a hammer. The city
receives special attention from its great outdoor offers, such
as: B. ATV tours (quad tours), mountain biking or canoe tours on
the lakes and rivers.
