Discover the secrets of a newly discovered adit, shrouded in many legends
Booking in advance is not required.
The switchback 130-meter tunnel is the result of difficult conditions and hard work of the miners in the tunnel.
This is perfectly illustrated by the plates presenting the tools used several hundred years ago for tunneling. On a medieval pavement wrought by fire, you can see sooting, which shows the use of an unusual fire method.
One of the most intriguing attractions is a fragment of a flooded old shaft. A medieval system of wooden drainage pipes dating back several hundred years extends from a several-meter long shaft with an original wooden casing. The same system as shown in the figures from the 16th century.
The colorful orange-yellow tunnels are covered with ocher, which was known many thousand years ago. What is even more interesting, it is used until today as a pigment used for paints and cosmetic products.
The underground labyrinths were completely overflooded for decades, so the discovery and preparation of the tunnels for tourist traffic was quite a challenge.
There is a mineral water spring in the adit, established in 1914 for medicinal water which, according to German research during the First World War had properties accelerating the healing of wounds and it used to improve the health condition for diagnosis of anaemia.
Putting the newly found adit into service is an incredible story, because nowadays it happens once a century!
