Rammelsberg Mine –

experience 1000 years of mining up close  


Mining in the Harz started on the Rammelsberg. Operations at the mine stopped in 1988 after over 1000 years of almost uninterrupted mining and in 1992 it was declared UNESCO World Heritage together with the Historic Town of Goslar. Today the installations above and below ground provide you with a unique insight into the history of mining.

Venture into the depths of the mountain on a walking tour of the mine or on the mine railway. Above ground the imposing ore processing plant and the museum buildings await you. Here you can discover more about the lives and work of the miners from the Middle Ages right up to the closure of the Rammelsberg Ore Mine.

You can gain a first impression of the more than 200-year-old Roeder Stollen gallery of the Rammelsberg in the video above.
