Our show mine

The fascinating world above and below ground


From the height into the depth

If you want to go down deep with us, you should start by looking up: The large wheel at the top of our unique historic winding tower will power the pit cage that will take you 283 meters down into the Röhrig shaft! At the bottom, a wealth of opportunities awaits you: As a cautious visitor, take the mine train to the scenes of copper mining; as an adventurous amateur explorer, choose one of our ambitious expeditions into the hidden passages of the site. And as a professional research guest, you follow your own route. All this has been possible since 1991, when the preservation of the Röhrig shaft was secured after the end of mining. A great fortune for Sangerhausen - and for you!
