Experience mining in medieval times on the Nahe River, thanks to a modern and interesting guided tour of the copper mine. Europe’s largest medieval excavation site mined by hand is a must see.

Marvel at caves and tunnels – some reaching as high as 30 metres – and all kinds of fabulous details.
A comprehensible demonstration explains how copper was produced from mined ore in the copper smelter some 500 years ago. For visitors with wheelchairs, prams and walking frames, our former main mine shaft “Erbstollen” is the most suitable to visit as it has no barriers, steps or gradients. A handrail throughout makes the walk easier, and enough benches are available.
Signage also available in Braille.
In addition, a mining circuit with a rally for adolescents, BBQ stations for self-catering and a children’s playground are also available. The copper mine team looks forward to welcoming you!
