This mine, which is located opposite the Samson Mine, was in operation well before 1575; its narrow, crooked extraction area makes it particularly authentic.
Today, a visit to the Catharina-Neufang mine is an exciting trip through time. Along with the historical mining techniques featuring hammer and pick work, a modern hammer drill driven by compressed air is shown in operation. The highlight is an open, completely mined ore crevice that is around 240 m deep.
Actually closed due to maintenance!
