    If you keep your eyes open, you will find old mining tracks all over Lviv. Really exciting spot.

    Great gallery, where a visit is worth! At events on the Waldbühne there is still a great food. Here is worth a visit.

    Very nice starting point. Snack can be taken and there is even a legend about the mercury finds on Lviv.

    This mine is located on the new premium trail "Mysterious Lviv". The search for the forest spirits and other "special features" makes fun both big and small!

    Great, generously built facility.
    In addition to the visitor mine (open until 18 clock, admission to 17 clock, only with guide) there is an economy and a beer garden with inexpensive offers. In particular, the consumption of even brought food is expressly allowed.
    The sanitary facilities are being renovated (as of April 2019), Dixie-Klos are available.

    Very nice starting point. Snack can also be taken, but there is also a grill with sausages and other delicacies. The gallery is also beautiful and dates from the time of the mercury finds on Lemberg.

    A very informative and impressive tour through the only mercury mine in Western Europe that has been expanded as a visitor mine. In the pit there are corridors from three different expansion periods.
