1.5-hr Tour

In addition to the Gegentrum II gallery there is a descent via ladders to the next lower level, the Gegentrum III gallery with narrow sections that were excavated 500 years ago using hammers and chisels. There you can admire an original 250-year-old wooden water pump and wooden rails for the “mining carts” of that time. Also included is a visit to the modern 5th field section (5th FK) with a mined ore vein (excavation depth 60m). A pneumatic hammer drill will be demonstrated here. The route is a total of 1.000 m long and includes descents and ascents via 6 solid, sloping ladders (length 2-6 m). These are offset from one another and bridge a total of 23 vertical meters.


With ladder descent: Take a journey through time into the middle ages of mining!


Also available as a gift voucher.
