Our Dive: Following down the main tunnel to 25 meter depth, arriving after 3 minutes the first pump room- the Bremsberg. We followed the main line, passing the explosives depot to the left, arriving the "living room" just in front. The second sole slopes down very slow to old minig railways, leading down to the deep section to more than 40 meters...
Specials: The guided mine tour in the dry areas is really interesting - you find all of the underwater territory one level up in the dry. Good for some historical mine facts - we enjoyed it very much!
