The Roeder gallery, named after mine official Johann Christoph Roeder, is a 200 year old system of “power lines“ and machines. For more than 100 years, mining was only possible at the Rammelsberg because of this system. Follow the underground path of the water, pass by enormous waterwheels and discover the hidden colours of the mountain!
Tours are offered on a daily basis (main season: 10 am to 4 pm, on the hour; off season: 11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm).
