For more than 1000 years ore deposits were mined at the Rammelsberg mine; making it one of the largest continuously mined ore deposits in the world. It is a witness to the history of mining and rightly became Germany's first UNESCO World Heritage Site of technology. On display are impressive monuments to mining spanning over nine centuries and exciting testimonies of human labour, which visitors can experience in a variety of tours above and below ground. In the 200-year-old Roeder Gallery you walk through the narrow shaft passing the impressive wooden water wheels via the Radstuben (wheel chamber). Take the mine train through the Richt Shaft to see the machinery of modern mining. Here you can still see firsthand the conditions under which the miners did their work, which was always hard and dangerous despite all the technology. Immerse yourself in the colourful 800-year old Rathstiefste Gallery, during a 4 hour adventure tour, which is concluded with a hearty miner’s meal underground. Above ground is one of the most exciting museums of mining in Europe.
