  • We have visited many mines, unfortunately we are out here with a dissatisfied feeling. The entrance with the pit railway was good, that also slips. Unfortunately almost only laser shows, tapes, little. Until hardly any information. Driving across the lake with loud noises and lasers not suitable, questions were answered only annoyed. Annoying the advertising also in the leadership

  • A visit to the mine is worthwhile if you are more interested in entertainment and spectacle than in information. Very long waiting time until the tour, sometimes up to 3 hours. This is something to be prepared for and to plan for something different in this time, which is well known. The leadership was funny but not very informative. The laser shows and the loud music have covered the mining character. It is recommended to wear long-sleeved and legged clothing, so that you do not get the overalls on the bare skin (also not exactly suitable) If you do not have too high expectations, a guided tour on rainy days is highly recommended.
