Guided tour through the mine in Obertal
In the Bromriesen mine, visitors have a true sense of what it must have felt like back in the past having to earn your living under some of the most difficult conditions imaginable. In the dark, outfitted only with headlamps, the mine guide leads you via ladders deep into the mine system. The former mining methods, such as setting fires, chiseling and laying explosives, are still evident to this day. The unique below-ground experience allows you to immerse yourself in the mystical life led by miners. The interplay of being impressed and feeling a few uneasy butterflies has caused many a visitor to climb back down into the mine yet again at a later date. It is impossible to imagine a more impressive way to experience history!

Wednesday 1:45 pm and Friday 9:30 am. Adults with SC € 15.00 - otherwise € 18.00; Children with SC € 8.00 – otherwise € 11.00
