Come and get caught by the fascination of 800 years of mining! Following the long mining tradition of Freiberg you can learn about the efforts and the often harsh working conditions, our ansestors faced, as well as their technical masterpieces over the centurys. Get hands on the geology of the local silver deposit that is written in the walls, by following the actual veins. You want to see modern mining machines work, experience the atmosphere of darkness and silence, that can only be found underground, listen to storys, where historical truth and handed down myths embrace each other and can´t be told from each other in the light of your headlamp?
Than follow us down the 150 Meter in the shaft of „Reiche Zeche“, where you can join us in several tours. We offer different tours, from the one hour teaching path, apropriate for people of all ages and even for wheelchairs up to the 5 hour tour, leading you deep in the farest corners of the mining field.
Further information about tours, costs, opening times and contact you will find on our website.
