Get close to nature with this “adventure programme” for 5- to 15-year-old children and adolescents, ideal as a birthday party. Also ideal as a special occasion for school celebrations and end of exam season parties. We offer three different versions of underground children’s birthday parties, tailored to suit different age groups and completely independent of the weather. All variants include an age-appropriate tour, as well as barbecues. The age recommendations come from many years of experience.

BBQs at children’s birthdays (children’s parties)

Please bring your own food (sausages / rolls) to grill, according to your own preferences, as well as drinks (warm cocoa / tea in winter) and plates. You can also bring salads or cakes, we leave the choices up to your imagination. We provide a wood camp fire outside the mine (alternatively a “poor weather electric grill” in the pit). There are also grill grates, cutlery and tables with benches.


Please note

Due to the length of the children’s birthday party, warm clothing (jacket) and sturdy, closed footwear are absolutely necessary, even in summer temperatures. The clothes can get dirty! The temperature in the mine is + 10 °C all year round. The mine is damp, but rubber boots and rain jackets are not necessary.


We recommend that you get in touch one day before a children’s birthday party to discuss details by phone.


We start promptly at the agreed time, from the entrance to the Mining Museum at the top of the Schauinsland.


Minimum age requirements for the longer special tours

For the 2.5-hr children’s birthdays (children’s parties) Option III with ladder descent we recommend a minimum age of 12 years. With sufficient physical fitness we will accept participants from 10 years of age. Participating children must therefore be at least 10 years old.
