A fairly new museum, since they mined here actively into the 1980’s. Take a full day, or two halves. Interesting to see a place where mining took place before year 0..!

It is nothing special, just some corridors and mining machinery. Thankfully we had our tour explained in English.

I decided to take „Fire & water guided tour”. Unluckily it was given in german language but very interesting. If somebody decides to visit this place I recommend to call and ask for non german speaking tourist guide.

Took the tour of the old mine shafts. It was just what I had hoped for. Narrow passages. Steep staircases and a well informed guide. We went with a German tour guide but she spoke well English and we maneged to get a good grip...More

Really interesting "museum". You can choose between three or four different tours without reservation. We took "Der Roederstollen" and "Vom Erzbrocken zum Konzentrat". Both tour guides were pretty good informed and entertaining. And both tours were very authentic (genuine machines shown at their native workplaces)....More

Very disappointing. Tours were only in German or Danish. No English and neither any encouragement that they might give some English assistance. Odd since (almost) all Danish speak English! Anyway, we left. Guess they don’t like the English here.

Great visit with two the tours into the mine. A really interesting history and exciting to see how mining had developed over several hundred years. We had a great Danish speaking guide and that made the visit perfect as we could get all the details...More

We took the "railway" tour, and there was very little walking involved. No hiking at all. (We were there with very young kids.) You board a train like the one the miners were using (have to bend a bit to get in the wagon), 5... More

Yes, the mine and the museum are in exactly the same place - well, maybe twenty feet apart!
