Mines of Rammelsberg UNESCO World Heritage Site
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.
