2.5-hr tour

Further descent over 25 vertical meters and 7 ladders to the 4th field section, the lowest of a total of three levels in our tour area. Here you can experience the “holiday apartment” lounge. The view into the largest excavation cavity in corridor III with the new steel bridge is particularly spectacular. In corridor VI which hasn’t been fully mined (mineral find), you can also see the two main ores sphalerite and argentiferous galena as well as the “luxury toilet”. At the end of the tour we will offer you a taste of pit Schnapps. The route has a total length of 1.800m and includes descents and ascents over a total of 13 ladders stretching over a total of 48 vertical meters. A premium experience: This makes the Schauinsland one of the best European visitor mines – nothing left to be desired in terms of a perfect all-round adventure for any mining enthusiast!
