  • The Genoveva Castle in Mayen is a beautiful very large castle that a very clear historical overview shows through the years. It is also known as the eiffel museum. The castle is also for children very attractive there are different interactive things to do, such as in a mining car driving, or other pretty instructive things. There is a clear explanation of the geology of the Eiffel, the many volcanoes and also the emergence of the Eiffel is explained in a clear way. Under the castle is the Schiefer mountain of work a mine where minerals and slate and was won. In the mine are still old thread steenzagen, underground train tracks with mountain train, and various clothing and machines are still there to see. Also is there a film screened in 3d and one is then in an old train, very nice too. In the my one is required to have a protective coat and helmet. The jacket is from the cold. All in all well worth a visit.

  • The castle is so not the only thing that you can explore. Inside is located the Museum of slate, which was very interesting also for the children. Oppressive for me but the thought that people in the war sought refuge in this tunnel.

  • The Museum is very clearly arranged with beautiful interactive exhibits; the slate mine unique and impressive for everyone from young to old. Recommended.
