  • A once in a lifetime experience, where you can see the entire mining history of this small town. The shaft is well kempt and safe, the only thing I'd like to see is an expansion of the museum and more access to the mine.
  • Shaft is well kept and before you enter you get to see short movie about the past of it. You enter in small groups and guides tell you a lot of interesting stories about mining in this particular shaft. Walkthrough takes about an hour and if you have some good questions it can get longer.
