The Rammelsberg mine is a unique monument to the history of mining. It is the only mine in the world that can demonstrate over 1,000 years of consistent ore mining.

Together with the imperial city of Goslar and the Upper Harz Water Management, the world’s largest and most important pre-industrial energy supply system, they present a fascinating triumvirate of technological and cultural history.
