Great fun and experience although could be better organised.

The mine itself was fantastic and our tour guide was a great host who thankfully spoke a little English. The tour was about 2 hours in total including a lovely walk up to the mine. The tour itself was quite adventurous, there were lots of steep ladders, narrow passages and at times we went quite fast. Our 4 year old managed but it's definitely for active people I'd say.

We don't speak a great deal of German, so it was a bit confusing to understand how the ticket times worked. They're really just a rough guide, if there are a lot of visitors you need to wait for another tour guide to be available which meant we waited 40 minutes after our supposed 1.30pm start time. If we'd have known we'd have headed downstairs at 1.15 or sooner. Unfortunately this made us late for an activity we were doing in the evening, but we don't regret coming here.

The lunch is also nice German food and huge portions!

Fascinating tour of historic silver mine
Jul 2014 • Family
It was a rainy day and we decided to visit somewhere out of the weather. We hadn't really planned to come so it was all a surprise for us. And we were very pleased we did!

Thanks to our wonderful guide, we had a great experience. Karl-Heinz went to great trouble to ensure we enjoyed the tour and that we understood the background information too. Luckily for us, he spoke English well and even though some of the words were technical or geological, we followed it all. Well done Karl-Heinz, you really made our visit a success.

We are a family with two small children, boys aged 6 & 3. They were very excited to go in the mine and were determined to 'dig up treasure'. We all had to dress in waterproof coats, wellies and a hard hat - all provided and no shortage of sizes on offer. There is a locker for valuables too. Our guide made sure everyone hod been to the toilet as it will be 2 hours underground. We then walked a short distance through the Black Forest to the mine entrance, where our older son was allowed to unlock the gates to the mine.

We all followed the guide through the low, narrow tunnels, which are lit with mains lights have metal floor and handrails where needed. There is lots of running water in the mine so the wellies were essential kit, as was the hard hat as some parts are rather low.

At the many points of interest, Karl-Heinz explained what there was to see. We saw many types of rock bearing minerals and semi-precious stones. We saw how the ancient miners had dug tunnels and ventilation shafts, and how they had worked their way into the hillside. We saw the old trucks used to cart away silver and waste rocks. There were stalachtites and stalagmites. Karl-Heinz showed how the old miners used wooden splints held in their mouths to make light and let the children all have a turn at digging with hammer and chisel. Our boys loved this part.

We were 125 metres under the ground, and there are no lifts, just steps and ladders, so a reasonable level of fitness is necessary. Anyone with reduced mobility may find it difficult. I had to carry our 3 year old on most of the climbs, though the 6 year-old was fine.

Overall, a really interesting experience. Just to be in a place like that is amazing. It was even better as we had such a good guide. I think most families would enjoy it, though probably appeals more to boys. The admission price is very reasonable, and there is a discount for Gastekart holders, which we were given free by our accommodation, and I think is the same everywhere.
