Very, very interesting. The Roederstollen tour is especially good. Special thanks to the lovely lady who took us on the above tour in English as we were the only two taking the tour. You made our visit extra interesting!

We visited with kids 3 and 6 yrs old. Went on a 1,5 hr walking tour to the water wheel. I would have loved to spend more time in the museum as it is a really cool place. Nicely set up and modern. Friendly staff.

We took the "railway" tour, and there was very little walking involved. No hiking at all. (We were there with very young kids.) You board a train like the one the miners were using (have to bend a bit to get in the wagon), 5... More

Hi. it takes at least a half day. One whole day could be spent there with all three guided tours. And there is a good restaurant for lunch.

Yes, the mine and the museum are in exactly the same place - well, maybe twenty feet apart!
