A fairly new museum, since they mined here actively into the 1980’s. Take a full day, or two halves. Interesting to see a place where mining took place before year 0..!

I decided to take „Fire & water guided tour”. Unluckily it was given in german language but very interesting. If somebody decides to visit this place I recommend to call and ask for non german speaking tourist guide.
