Step inside the breathtaking world of this former mining shaft, which operated 24 hours a day from 1898 until 1974. A total amount of nearly 32 million tons of coal was produced here.
And guess what? This historic mining shaft is still accessible as an essential part of the Dutch Mining Museum. Keep in mind, just in case you have some time left today or tomorrow: the museum's HQ is just a few minutes' walk from here. If you have a passion for historical industries, this is a must-visit. Take a step back in time and let yourself be captivated in the old days of coal miner's lifes.
To continue, the route will guide you through the gates of the site, walking straight past the mining shaft. But it is possible that, outside opening hours, this gate will be closed. In that case, you have to make a small detour around the site: keep following the path your on and take the very first path to the right. Soon enough you will notice the next location.
