Rabensteiner Stollen is the only coal mine of the Harz, which gives a fascinating insight into the underground world. After entering the coal mine with the "Rabenstein-Express" you can see what it was like in the olden days and how work was carried out in the original workplaces, little alcoves which often were not higher than 60cm. One can just imagine how it must have felt working underground with these inhospitable working conditions. If you like you can also take a ride on the bike trolley through the mine. You might discover some interesting fossils. A small bistro with a cosy garden and a museum shop are also available.
