Short drive from Goslar, surrounded by mountains and nature! Large area, with various types of saunas and baths. There is also a salted pool area (indoor and outdoor), which is a nice way to get some exercise in.

Very, very interesting. The Roederstollen tour is especially good. Special thanks to the lovely lady who took us on the above tour in English as we were the only two taking the tour. You made our visit extra interesting!

Due to our poor organisiation skills we had to take a tour in German. It was still fascinating to see such a historic site and see the tunnels where people mined for so many years. So hard to comprehend the scale of the tunnels all...More

This is a must if you are in Goslar or nearby. It is a great adventure to travel into the now abandoned mine and experience how it has been working there. Just the idea that it has been mined for over 1000 years is hard...More

I'm sure it would be very interesting if i had understood anything. They could have said this in advance. But people seemed very pleased so if you understand German I'm sure it's a great experience.

We took the "railway" tour, and there was very little walking involved. No hiking at all. (We were there with very young kids.) You board a train like the one the miners were using (have to bend a bit to get in the wagon), 5... More
