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 are exceptional, giving a first rate feeling of what it was like to be a... 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 in German, we still got the gist of the tour and found it interesting.

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 it to see the old water powered wheels and think of these amazing people.

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 have liked to have taken a tour but we spent so much time in the... 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 on a more specific topic. We chose the train tour as we wanted to go... 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)

We made the trek up from the town to the mine. Not a hard walk but there are a few steep parts and it was a pleasant day. The exhibits are spread throughout the mining buildings. It was a shame that not all of them had English translations. Some very interesting stuff. We took the historic "fire and water" tour... More

It is a pity that the artefacts pertain to last century only; but it is still impressive with the galleries, ore displays and power central. I advise: - Do not take the bus to the mine. Walk leisurely upwards; go through alleys where you can see the homes of the wealthy families. In the mines you will witness on what... More
