The mines of Rammelsberg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offer an unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages, both above ground with the many museum buildings, and below it with the visitor mine. This authentic working environment offers families with children, senior citizens and people with disabilities the chance to visit many permanent and temporary exhibitions as they please. A trip in the inclined conveyor lift, which takes visitors to the highest point of the mine, where the ore is processed, is a new feature at this accessible attraction. The trip in the lift and the view over the area are extraordinary experiences for the entire family. The underground tours are a highlight for all visitors, especially children. A walk through the 200-year-old Roeder tunnel system or a ride on the mine train takes tourists into a long-lost world. The mine supports barrier free tourism with a specially adapted train called the “Rollimobil” for wheelchair users.
The Rammelsberg mine is also perfect for family holidays with kids as it offers tours designed with children in mind. Visitors to the mine can spend a few hours, or even the whole day, at this UNESCO World Heritage Site and enjoy some refreshments in the museum restaurant.
It goes without saying that the safety standards above and below ground are high. The underground area is checked daily.
Lower Saxony’s KinderFerienLand certification makes it easier for parents to search for destinations geared towards kids' holidays. The basic idea is that only family friendly companies will bear the seal. Expert assessors check the operation’s service, child-friendly facilities and child safety standards.
