Museum “Mine and Wine”

      Adjacent to the exhibition mine, visitors find a small documentation centre “Mine and Wine”, which exhibits curious and rare slate mining and wine making tools. A non-stop video presentation illustrates the modern state-of-the-art slate mining in Europe (length approx. 12 minutes) taking place in the Rathscheck Slate Mine near Mayen. The small museum also has an impressive statue of Saint Barbara from 1897 on display!

The small Museum “Mine and Wine” is open free of charge!
