The Visitor‘s Mine shows is a very authentic site of industrial heritage - with different bookable trips through the mountain, with a mine shaft, mine train and original heavy machines.

The Visitor‘s Mine wishes to recall the 2000 years old history of the iron-ore mining industry in the Lahn and Dill areas. This mining industry, the iron and steel and associated iron-processing industries all used to give work to the people of our region. But since the discontinuation of mining at „Fortuna“ on the 4th of March in 1983 this tradition has died out here and throughout the whole of Hessen.

The descent into the mine should give you an impression of the hard and dangerous work of the miners underground, of the technique used for the iron-ore mining and of the geology of the mine itself.
