  • Once you have parked along a narrow path about 500 m steps to the entrance of the mine. There is no eating or drinking, so best bring picnic. Once arrived we had to wait half an hour for the tour started with German-language guide. You can get a free headset that everything translated into Dutch, very useful! The mine itself is really breathtaking, you can return the gems on their original place in the rocks see.

  • Here you can get a good look at the wedding of the gemstone polishing plant. The show is very good and you feel transported back in old times. A hard craft. We knew the value appreciate more then. The connected gemstone mine is one of the highlights in Idar-Oberstein. Great leadership and unique insight into a fascinating "underworld"

  • We are a relatively small group of inside. The tour lasted about an hour. Explanation only German, but well what would you like to also in Germany. The guide had a nice story and they also took the time. Not expecting that there are so many gems in the rocks would sit and so many different types. Glad that we have been, was worth it.
