Holiday programme

During the NRW Christmas holidays from 21 December 2023 to 7 January 2024, the German Mining Museum Bochum invites you to visit. Various guided tours above and below ground allow visitors to immerse themselves in the world of mining.

During the NRW Christmas holidays, our visitor's mine is open to you from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You go underground on your own and follow the tour. You do not need to book or register for your visit. You explore the mine on your own.

There is a separate audio tour for all four tours of the permanent exhibition and for the visitor's mine. The audio tours are presented in German and English. In addition, there is an audio guide tour for children aged 8 and over. The audio guides are available in the free app of the Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. Please note that there is no network in the visitor's mine, so you should ideally download the audio guide at home.

You can find the complete programme of events during the NRW Christmas holidays in our events calendar.

The programme can always be changed or cancelled at short notice. Please check our website and call the visitor service on +49 234 5877-126 during opening hours (Tues. to Sun. between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.) for more information.
