The Eichelberg water tunnels in Bad Grund

Compressed air for the Hilfe Gottes Mine

The Knesebeck Shaft was a part of the "Hilfe Gottes" mine that was closed in 1992, the last ore mine in the Harz. This excursion will take you to the mono- and bi-directional water wheel chambers in the Mining Museum in Bad Grund as well as the hydrocompressor tower, which produced compressed air. Underground, you will explore the water transport tunnel in the Eichelberg, guided by an experienced miner. The sophisticated system served to provide the mine with water power and compressed air energy.
