For more information

This is the only accessible silver mine along the Silver Road between Freiberg and Dresden. Here you can see original evidence telling the story of silver mining in the 16th century, such as the areas worked by the miners' hammers, and the veins of ore. This journey of discovery is open to everyone over the age of 6, making the mine an excellent place to bring the family. A variety of different special exhibitions means that there's always something new to see here. There are plenty of places to sit down along the route of the discovery trail should you feel the need to rest.
