Our surface tour opens up a gem of Freiberg mining history, the Alte Elisabeth shaft, an otherwise rarely accessible authentic site in the town of Freiberg. The mine from the middle of the 19th century is still largely as it was, when the last miners left it in 1913. As part of the Himmelfahrt Fundgrube, the Alte Elisabeth mining facilities have also been a UNESCO World Heritage Site >>Montanregion Erzgebirge/Krusnohori<< since 2019. Experience exciting insights into the history of mining and the work-life of the miners, who laid the foundations for the prosperity and technical progress of an entire region here. The Schwarzenberg blower is currently not accessible due to construction work!
