A World Full of Fantasy

Many years ago, miners near Saalfeld set off in search of gold, silver and other coveted treasures. Black alum shale was discovered here. After mining the black rock, nature transformed the caves into a co­lourful underground world over the course of time, today’s Fairy Grottoes. Find out lots of interes­ting facts about the show mine’s history and the miners’ lives during the guided tour.

In the Feenweltchen above the display mine, elves, fairies, trolls and forest spirits have made their homes. Both young and old are invited to enjoy the adventure world that is the Feenweltchen. There is plenty to discover on the journey through the magical kingdom to the Fairy Tree-Top Castle.

You can read, listen, touch and taste at numerous information and interactive points in the interactive exhibition Grottoneum. Find out how the light used to be ignited in the mine. Let stalactites grow and fit the coloured minerals together in a puzzle. Experience how the Fairy Grottoes came about 440 million years ago in the grotto cinema.
