Fascinating journey through time
Embark on a journey through time. Millions of years back into the past. The incomparable mix of nature and civilization, the symbiosis of 200 million years of history and modern technology, fascinates people more than ever before.

Deep awe
The caves were discovered in 1870 by miners searching for lead and zinc. They were able to penetrate faster and deeper into the mountain using the passages created by nature. Today, a subterranean world reveals itself to the visitor, where carefully placed light illuminates the absolute darkness. You stand in awe of what miners once saw. Their everyday life becomes tangible and tangible on the way through the caves.
