Adventure Shift

Adventure Shift

A discovery tour for young and old.

Experience 7 hours of mining life up close. After an introduction at the ore processing plant in Maiern, visitors travel by shuttle bus to the Poschhaus Gallery at 2,000 metres above sea level. There the mine railway brings participants close to the ore deposits, where an adventurous tour of the gallery begins.

The first section of the tour runs through mining galleries from the 1970s, with watercourses and shafts leading into the Karlsstollen Gallery that dates back to around 1700 and has some narrow passages. Participants then descend via a secured inclined shaft with almost 300 steps back into the Poschhaus Gallery, where they can test their mining skills on the remaining ore veins.
Duration: 7 hrs. Booking required. Minimum number of participants: 8 persons. The tour is suitable for children from 6 years of age. Participants require warm clothes and warm socks. Gallery gear – boots, jacket, helmet and headlamp – is provided by the Museum. The tour runs from mid-May at the earliest, depending on the snow conditions. Not suitable for those suffering from fungal allergies or claustrophobia.
