Directed by the television director and film producer Peter Prestel, known from numerous Terra X films and historical documentaries, a documentary on the mining history of the Montafon was the result of a close cooperation between the Goethe University Frankfurt, the Montafon Tourism Office, Montafon TV and the municipality of Bartholomäberg. The film takes a close look at the golden age of mining in the Montafon during the Middle Ages. Filming took place on the Kristberg and Bartholomäberg, focusing on the mining archaeological excavations of the Goethe University in Frankfurt as well as the miners' church on the Kristberg and the magnificent Bartholomäberg church with its famous Romanesque cross, which was filmed in the original. The idea for the film came from the book Montafoner Zeitmaschine by Rüdiger Krause, published in 2015.
