Kindergartens & Schools
We offer a special programme for kindergartens and schools. Apart from the guided tours through the visitor’s mine and our new tours, kindergarten and schoolchildren up to year one in secondary school, can enjoy our participative activities and experience mining-related themes at first hand.
A fee is charged for guided tours arranged for kindergartens and school classes. Two adult companions per 20 children may enter free of charge. These guided tours may also be arranged in English or French on request, subject to availability and a supplementary charge.
Visitors must register in advance for guided tours and special activities. Please contact our Visitor Services using the telephone number +49 234 5877-126, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (Tues. to Fri. between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm).
