Red mine bear

The Tagesstollen of the Roter Bär iron ore mine, which was set up as a visitor mine, provides an authentic insight into the world of former Harz mining.
The areas that are easily accessible today provide interesting geological insights and show the mining techniques used in the 1920s, e. g. blind shaft construction site with compressed air coil.
Guided tours:
April - October every Saturday at 2 pm.
