Water - curse and a blessing for mining
Romantic babbling brooks run through the tranquil landscape of open mountain meadows next to Clausthal-Zellerfeld. Artistic dry stone walling, small bridges and stone arches, however, tell a different story about the mines in Zellerfeld. They are evidence of the enormous achievements of the miners and their complex efforts to utilize the valuable water for mining. This easy circular tour offers you an ideal introduction to the Upper Harz Water Management System.
