  • Rather not with children there go! The staff is very unfriendly, everything will be charged extra, and even infants must pay admission. Afterwards denied that admission is to pay for infants, but that was definitely in our case and we ask several times at the box office because we have surprised us also. The worst, however, is that only one parent dig must go with the children. Want to dig both parents with the children, this extra will be charged. Also this circumstance will be denied, but just so happened us. Whether it is an isolated case, I can not judge, but was the overall impression that it is trying to earn as much money by any means. Of course a profit optimization is absolutely legitimate, to a certain extent but here is exaggerated and I consider unacceptable the behavior of employees.

  • The Amethyst world on the brink of Maissau, a place about 40 km north of Vienna, offers an interesting insight into the world of gemstones with 2 different guides. There 2 different tours are offered, where one deals mainly with the degradation and the history of the Amethyst, represents the General history of the jewels the second in the stone house, and also offers a special exhibition, heuer "Fancy Diamonds" exhibition. Who are interested in precious stones and would like to take a leisurely trip in the vicinity of Vienna, which is right here.

  • The Amethyst studs was rather disappointing, but all the more impressive for it was the exhibition in the stone house, which should be absolutely visited. Because many buses to the attraction is partly to be expected to wait for the guided tours. In the minerals and gem shop there to buy numerous jewelry and gift items.

  • Me and my family love it. you get to dig for yourself for amethysts, which is pretty cool, specially for kids. Also, you can visit the (fake)mine which is pretty impressive. The outdoor garden is beautiful and you can spend hours there. Also: the playground rocks! All in all: good for a whole day trip.
  • Really interesting amethyst mine, with exhibitions.Unforgettable experience for children to dig out their own precious gemstones.
  • A nice place for a weekend visit, especially if you are with kids. The guided tours in the mine and the exhibition are only in german. Very interesting attraction for the kids is to dig for minerals. The gardens are also nice and free for access.
  • Nice place for family trip. Guided tours are not in English what is such a shame. Personal mining experience was the best.
  • Don't go there if you prefer a scientific approach to minerals. They had this strange nostalgic-esoteric focus, like lecturing you about which nobleman attributed which healing power to the stones and whatnot.. Might be fun for the kids, who can dig for minerals, but for us it was kind of a let-down.
