Guided tours

Guided tours offer valuable information and curiosities

How did the mine of Recht develop? Where was the slate used? From where did the whetstone (Coticule) come from? Which role did the masons from Tyrol play? Why was the search of the brothers Margraff, to find roofing slate, not successful? Or what have sharks and frogs to do with the bluestone of Recht?

These and many more interesting questions which will be answered and anecdotes told during the guided tour  in the visitor's mine of Recht.
