Marie Louise Stolln" Visitor Mine

Short facts

Please book your participation in the guided tour in advance by telephone or online. We will also be happy to answer any questions by telephone.

Mining has been practised in and around Berggießhübel since the Middle Ages. During the 90-minute guided tours of the mine, you can experience the working world of a historic mine at first hand by going down a tunnel, as the miners call it. The "Marie Louise Stolln", now used as a visitor mine, takes you 400 metres into the mountain with only a minimal incline until you reach the former iron ore deposit, the Mother of God deposit. You will pass areas that still document unchanged situations of the old mining industry, as well as contemporary development sections that comply with today's safety regulations.

The development of the gallery floor as a concrete path as well as the electric lighting and the contemporary development of the escape route in the former winding shaft are concessions to the specifications as a visitor operation. Access to the underground lake is safely ensured by a massive staircase. The preserved historic parts of the roadway show a compact rock structure and typical roadway profile, which also narrows the gallery in short sections to a width of 65 cm and a height of just under 160 cm.

You cover a distance of approx. 1 km underground, there are no seating or resting facilities. The mine is not suitable for guests with wheelchairs, walkers or with 2 walking aids.Children are admitted from the age of 5, unfortunately dogs have to wait outside.

With the guest card you save €1 per guided tour.
