You are looking for a special kind of experience, which unites romantic atmosphere, (rusticality), education and naturalness? Than you are right here! We are the nonprofit society „Alte Hoffnung Erbstolln e.V.“ and are looking for the mine „Alte Hoffnung Erbstolln“ since 1978. In more than 180 000 unpaid working hours the members of oursociety reconstructed parts of the mine, to safe it more expiration, in their freetime. With your damission fee you help us, that we can extend the mine for visitors and preserve the technical objects for the future. Why is that our goal? First in the 13th century the mining was starting here. Some short workingperiods followed. From 1831 till 1885 the mining was in full bloom and could feed 300 „Knap- pen“ (Miners). Here some interesting, technical solutions for the waterremoval had their first practical using. Of course the still standing “aufschlagwassertechnische“ plant with its „Röschensystem“ in unique. Also there are more interesting objects of the older workingperiods with „geschlägelten Stolln und Abbauen“ (only hand made working in the mine) in the area of the mine. We want to go with you on a special trip through the mine on the traditiional way. You go, with helmet, safing clothe and an original miners light, down into the mine to the former mechintechnical center of the mine. You must be able to climb over „Fahrten“ (ladders), because you want to do it same as the old miners, dont you? You see impressive rooms and their installed stabilisators in good conditions, find real romantic on a boattrip into the mountain. For people, who have more special interrest in our mine and our work we have extensive literature and also different minerals and souvenirs. For you stay in the miningarea the guided tour we can recommend you restaurants, walking trails or other, nearly excoursion destinations. Above all walking trips throug the romantical „Mittleres Zschopautal“ (Middle Zschopau-Valley) are very recom- mendable, there you can see more objekts of the mining history. Our society is organizing special events like walking trips at daylight, guided tours at night or a christmas concert underthe earth, as well. Please ask for the dates very early, because we have only alimited number of tickets for this events. 1843 the first turbin, working under the earth, in the mining area of city Freiberg was used to more the pumps at „Alte Hoffnung Erbstolln“: The Kreiselradgezeug The first turbin of moving pumps in a shaft, working under the earth, was constructed by Brausdorf & Brendel in 1839 like the father of the turbin, Benoit Fourneyron (1802-1867), did it. Look at the drawing of the Germany-Site „Historische Technik“. With the help of the entrance money, money and object donations and the regional administration we were able to rebuild this historical machine in the original size and the old place. A visit to this place is part of the guided tour. We need your help in different ways to reconstruct the whole mine. You need old clothes, dont come with white clothes. Use our protection-clothes. The temperature is around 8-11°C, the whole year. More advices you can get from the notices in the main building Our standardroute (Visitors from 6-75 years): A tour of the newly-built „Rollschachtkaue“ (Rollingshaftbuilding) with „Scheidebank“ and rollingshaft. The drive-in you will do by boat and you will come out at the „Eisen- bahnstolln“; you have to be able to climb 5 ladders; under the earth you can sit down in the socalled „Steigerstube“. You visit the turbin rooms with the „Schützerstolln“, and also you will see remains of the old pumping systems, the iron pump from 1871, pumps, made by wood, from the „Kreiselradgezeug“ from 1843. And at last you will see the reconstructed „Kunstwinkel“ withpumping pole systems. From our mainbuilding over the mainshaft you have to walk down the mountain to the river Zschopau ca. 300 meters. Getting the equipment, the visit itsself and giving back the equipment together will take 1,5 till 2 hours. For tours with entrance and exit only by boat you have to ask before, than we can organize this for you. Admission fees for the standard route: Children from 6 till 14 years: 6,00 € Adults: 9,50 €
