Explore an underground slate mine through a 300m tunnel and excavated chamber walls reaching 14m high.

The Schieferstollen Recht mine was utilized for hundreds of years to extract slate from the Earth. These days the mining is no longer active and the mine is maintained as a museum. This is a great way to spend a few hours for all ages. They will start you off with a short video presentation of the geology of the area. Then you will go downstairs to don on a helmet and extra layers if needed. Further below, there is a brightly light area with historic slate paraphernalia. Head into the dimly light 300m long tunnel. At the end you will emerge into the chamber hall that extends up to 100m in length and up to 14m in height. Explore at your leisure. Return the way you came and drink a Belgian beer upstairs!
