We visited with family of four with two young children aged twelve and nine. I found the visit surprisingly interesting and fun. The train-ride inside the mountain was an adventure and gave a good picture and feel of what working in a mine was like....More

Interesting experience which would have been better if we had started with Museum House M. In any case the experience was worth the entrance fee.

The mine complex has been kept as it was in 1988 when the mine closed, making the experience very authentic. There are several optional tours, as well as the buildings now turned into wonderful museums which you can access when you want. The underground tours...More

A really interesting museum, easy to spend a few hours here. A UNESCO World Heritage site, and easy to see why. We went on the Train tour into the mines, and although the we hardly speak a word of German, and the tours are wholly...More

The mine has several tours. We only had time for the tour of 1800's mining. It was fantastic to see the ingenuity and industry of the miners of this period. Your shoes will get dirty and you must climb steep steps, but it is worth...More

We stopped here just to take a few photos and have a look, but ended up staying a couple of hours walking through the exhibits and the museum which was free. It was much larger than we anticipated and was very well done. We would...More

We visited the museum and mine today. We learned that it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. This is a huge complex that was a fully functioning mine until 1988. You see both historical information and equipment along with options for additional cost tours focused...More

definitely worth a visit! A bit outside Goslar, take a cab there and - weather permitting - stroll down back to the city (1/ h walk)

I intend to do a tour to the mine with my parents-in-law. How much walking/hiking is involved? I'm wondering if it is doable for them.

Hi. it takes at least a half day. One whole day could be spent there with all three guided tours. And there is a good restaurant for lunch.
I do not intend going down the mine itself and I ask whether the mine museum is far from the mine so I can browse there whilst others go down the mine. Is this possible ?

Yes, the mine and the museum are in exactly the same place - well, maybe twenty feet apart!
