  • Today we can not imagine the circumstances in which the miners had to work earlier, almost 1 km below the ground. Wonderful that they have preserved this piece of industrial past. It probably gives just a glimpse of how it really was, but this should be your "polite". Because that is this attraction though, it's an experience accessible to children and the elderly. With at the end a magnificent view over Central Limburg. You see on top of the elevator shaft the different my hills of the other mines, attic, Beringen, waterschei, E. We have this attached to a bicycle tour through the vast mine fields of winterslag and waterschei, now beautiful natural areas with beautiful bicycle paths and beautiful (covered) picnic locations. The Vennestraat adjacent to C-Mine has all kinds of fun (especially Italian) restaurants where we have eaten.

  • -Course under the ground, small original projections and statements, clear information boards, and especially a climb up the elevator shaft, with a great view over the surrounding area and the labirynth of Gijs Van Vaerenbergh under your feet.

  • Interesting expedition also very nice with children. You walk yourself through some tunnels and afterwards you can climb on the highest Tower (400 + steps)

  • Very interesting museum with lots of cool installations outside. Definitely go!
  • Nice cultural area with theater cinema restaurant museum everything is build in an old mine is a must!
  • Really nice place to visit. The old mine was converted into a museum where you can watch old machinery. You can climb to a 60m high tower where you can have an amazing view.
  • Culture at its finest
  • This former mining site has been reconversed into an area, plenty of activity in the region's major city, Genk. The coalmine itself is partly a museum, dedicated to the mining theme, but very well adapted to the presence of children, including a gigantic "smelling" test. The rest of the site is used as an event-location and on the site some smaller companies have started their activities. Cinema is at walking distance and there are possibilies to dine on the site.
