Fascinating time travel
Take an extraordinary journey through time.
Travel millions of years back into the past. The unequalled mix of natural and man-made beauty, the symbiosis of a history of 200 million years plus modern technology, are today more fascinating than ever.
Awe and admiration
Miners, looking for lead and zinc, discovered the caves in 1870.
The pitmen appreciated the underground tunnels created by nature, because they made entry into the mountain easier and faster. Today we look in awe at an underground world where carefully orchestrated illumination lights up the absolute darkness in the heart of the mountain. With admiration we see what the miners saw way back in the past, and their world and work is close enough for us to touch.
