Altenberg Mining Museum

At a glance

In Altenberg and Zinnwald one of the most important tin deposits of Europe was exploited. Museum and visitor mine still bear witness to it.

We take you on an exciting journey through time through the Altenberg mining industry. In the gallery we show you the simple means and some great ideas with which the old miners mined the coveted tin ore. In the museum building you will experience how the stamp mill crushed the ore with a loud roar and what was done with the tin.
