Mining railway and water tunnel

"Bremerhöhe" ridge above and below ground

Experience the ridge "Bremerhöhe" both above and below ground. The trip with the mining railway takes you along a former water transport ditch, which was dug to bring water to the ore mines in the Rosenhof area. Here, lead, copper and silver ore were mined from the 16th century until 1930. Following the railway journey, an impressive tour through the "Bremerhöher Wasserlauf" water transport tunnel will bring you to the Round Rosenhof Wheel Chamber, from where you will return above ground to the Ottiliae Shaft. Equipped with a helmet, protective jacket, boots and a lamp, you will explore the tunnel and the round bi-directional water wheel chamber at the Rosenhof.
