We went here on a group tour and had a blast! It was even fun wearing the coveralls. The tour was very informative and we all enjoyed sliding down the wooden slides. The gift shop was very nice with many great souveniers to be found.

Fun way to learn something about how the region became so rich. German guide (but a multilingual audio device is provided free), miners trains, wooden slides, some silly light and sound effects (but the kids seem to like them so...) Photography verboten, alas.
