Mining tradition and mine railway

Visit the Markus Röhling Stolln Mine in Frohnau (a district of Annaberg-Buchholz) and enjoy a special ride on a 600 mm (1 ft 11 5⁄8 in) gauge mine railway taking visitors about 500 meters (1640 feet) underground. Around 1500, miners began to mine for silver and other ores there.
Members of the mining association will take you on a tour through more than 500 years of mining industry in the Upper Ore Mountains. During a guided one-and-a-half-hour tour, the visitors undertake a journey through time through all epochs of this work, which so shaped the region. They get to know the old mining with a wooden water wheel with a diameter of 9 meters as well as the mining operations started after 1945 by the Soviet corporation Wismut. For this purpose, about 600 meters have to be walked underground, including three short staircases. The temperature in the gallery is 8 to 10 °C. Good luck!
