1957 opened to the public.


This adit is guided from both sides, one entrance is called Ewa, the other one Sylvester. The mine is popular and thus there may be some delay on days with many visitors. If possible try to avoid weekends and the summer school holidays.

The adit was dug in the 19th century as a drainage level for the nearby lead and silver mines. A 25 m descent down a spiral staircase leads to a flooded level where a boat trip takes you on a 600 m long journey.
