Mines of Ram­mels­berg UN­ESCO World Her­it­age Site

Kinderferienland Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony)
Reisen für Alle

The Mines of Ram­mels­berg UN­ESCO World Her­it­age Site is an un­for­get­table ex­per­i­ence for all ages, both above ground in the many mu­seum build­ings and un­der­ground in the vis­it­or mine. This au­then­t­ic former work­place of­fers fam­il­ies with chil­dren, older people and people with dis­ab­il­it­ies the op­por­tun­ity to vis­it nu­mer­ous per­man­ent and spe­cial ex­hib­i­tions in­de­pend­ently and spon­tan­eously. A new fea­ture is a ride on the in­clined con­vey­or, which takes vis­it­ors up to the highest point of the ore pro­cessing fa­cil­ity. Both the ride on the in­clined lift and the view over the site are an ex­traordin­ary ex­per­i­ence for the en­tire fam­ily.

The un­der­ground tours are es­pe­cially at­tract­ive for all vis­it­ors, and for chil­dren in par­tic­u­lar. Vis­it­ors can im­merse them­selves in a long-lost world, either on foot in the 200-year-old Roeder mine or on the mine train. Wheel­chair users have the op­tion of rid­ing in­to the mine on a spe­cial mine train ad­ap­ted for wheel­chairs.
As well as themed tours and work­shops for schools and oth­er chil­dren's groups, spe­cial fam­ily tours are offered at week­ends and fo­cus on the in­terests of chil­dren. All vis­it­ors to the UN­ESCO World Her­it­age Site can stay at Ram­mels­berg on an hourly basis or all day, not for­get­ting to take a break in the mu­seum res­taur­ant on the site.
Need­less to say, safety stand­ards both above and be­low are high and those be­low ground are checked every single day.
