The tour takes you to the underground tunnels of “Walert” iron ore mine which were dug between 1891 and 1963. Discover large tunnels on two different levels more than 70m below ground and see the impressive cavities left over by the miners while listening to the lively stories of your guide. The machines and tooling seen underground bears witness to iron ore mining in the entire region from the 1860s to the closure of the last Lorraine mine in 1997. Experience more than a century of technical progress at the very spot it happened.
