Playing in a Mine

We spent an afternoon at the German Mining Museum (Deutsches Bergbau Museum) this past weekend.  They have an underground mine, which visitors can explore to see how they have mined coal and hard-rock over the years.  Christian was in his element and definitely enjoyed being a tour guide for me!

If you visit us in Germany and are interested in mining, this is a place to visit.  I don’t think Christian will get tired of explaining all the equipment and history of mining!

  1. Interesting weekend activity (for you). I think I’ll pass on the mine tour when I get there – I’m thinking I’ll take you up on the food tour instead 🙂
