The medium-length special tour takes place under expert guidance and includes a descent from Gegentrum II gallery, using 6 ladders and covering an altitude difference of 23 meters to the next lower level with narrower sections that were excavated 500 years ago, using hammer and chisel. There you can admire an original 250 year old wooden water pump as well as wooden rails for the “pit carts” of that time. Also included is a visit to the modern 5th field section (5th FK) with mined vein (mining depth 60m). A pneumatic hammer drill will be demonstrated here.


The route is a total of 1.000m long and includes descents and ascents via 6 solid, sloping ladders (length 2-6m). These are offset from one another and bridge a total of 23 vertical meters.
