Copper Mine in Fischbach

Until the end of the 18th century, the Copper Mine Fischbach was one of Germany’s largest and most important mines. For centuries, miners mined valuable copper ore underground here.

Spellbinding minerals on the ceilings and walls, crystals and stalactites are explained during the guided tours. You can also visit the barrier-free "Erbstollen” tunnel. Here, too, you can experience the world of mining absolutely barrier-free.
