Mine of Rammelsberg - Mines of Rammelsberg, Historic Town of Goslar and Upper Harz Water Management System

Goslar, Germany
21.06.2018
The Rammelsberg is a mountain, 635 metres (2,083 ft) high, on the northern edge of the Harz range, south of the historic town of Goslar in the North German state of Lower Saxony. The mountain is the location of an important silver, copper, and lead mine, the only mine which had been working continuously for over 1,000 years when it finally closed in 1988.

In 1992 the museum became a UNESCO world heritage
project together with Goslar's Old Town. In 2010 this world heritage
site was expanded to include the Upper Harz Water Regale, Walkenried
Abbey and the historic Samson Pit.
The Rammelsberg Museum and Visitor Mine is an anchor point on the
European Route of Industrial Heritage (ERIH).
