Museum of the copper mine Stolzembourg

1,5 km away from Stolzembourg, one can find the remains of a former copper-mine which is more than 500 years old. During the last centuries, the vein of ore of "Klangbaach" has attracted many investors into the village, even though it lies remote from any big industrial region.

Around 1856, 1882, 1901 and 1938, the work was considerable. The biggest problem for the miners was the water that always infiltrated the galleries and flooded it.

The geological path permits the evaluation of the remains by putting back the mining site in its historical, geological and environmental state.

During the past years, part of the underground galleries have been made accessible again to the public. 50 metres under the ground you will learn all about the hard work of copper mining.
