45-minute tour

Expertly led tour of the Gegentrum II gallery (+1.189m), the topmost of a total of three levels in our tour area. View into the 50 m deep transport shaft to the 4th field section over the Kappler level (4th FK). A pneumatic hammer drill and a throwing shovel loader will be demonstrated during the tour. The modern chambers 1 and 2 impress with restored mine locomotives and the associated workshop, giving visitors a first impression of the versatility of the mining profession. The route runs along an even level, is 400 m long and can be walked in street clothing (jacket recommended) and ordinary footwear; there are no ladder descents.


Our route for beginners: flat and comfortable, even for children and seniors!
