The mine train is running again! New driving experience with open wagons

"On site with the mine train"

Ring, ring, ring! A bell warns loudly when the mine train enters the mine. Now embark on your adventure! Like the Rammelsberg miners, they drive deep into the mountain to their workplace "on site". You will encounter unique underground mine rooms, the history and function of which will be explored in the tour during the ore mining.

The tour takes place in small groups of max. 10 people, so that the prescribed distance of 1.5 meters can be maintained everywhere. Wearing mouth / nose protection is mandatory.

Duration 3/4 h (in german language)

"Fire and Water - The Roeder Gallery"

In the Roeder tunnel, immerse yourself in the more than 200-year-old system of water power-based conveyors on the Rammelsberg. Together with our mine guide, you follow the path of the water - once the only usable energy source - underground to the giant waterwheels that were used to extract ore for more than 100 years. The tours take place in small groups of max. 9 people, so that the prescribed distance of 1.5 meters can be maintained everywhere underground. Wearing mouth / nose protection is mandatory. Unfortunately, the tour is not suitable for glasses wearers, because in combination with the mouth / nose protection, the glasses fog up very much underground.

Saturday / Sunday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. every quarter of an hour (in german language)
Duration 1 h
