Versatile site full of cool stores, lots of sporting attractions and a fascinating cultural touch
Nice that they turned the old mine site into such a nice attraction ... nice plantings , stores , cafes and the adventure mountain is super ! we went to eat at the restaurant of the dive center and got very ( child) friendly service !!!
Totally worth a visit!
A great fun tour on "Mining Sunday" by former miner Mil. With great humor, he manages to tell you an awful lot in just over 2 hours. Learned a lot! We will definitely come back again because we have by no means seen everything in the area.
Oh yes the end of the tour, with the little train was a very nice ending.
And don't forget to have a "Koolputter" on the terrace afterwards.
Unexpectedly original and beautiful !
It all starts with a nice reception! Then the infrastructure is well realized, locker rooms, plumbing, access to the well. Everything is well organized at the poolside: lead, stab, bottles.
The visit is extraordinary though! The sets, the fish, it's magical.
A beautiful project that I wish a long life!
