There is a good rest area below the Marienschacht which offers an excellent view of Dresden and the north towards West Lusatia, left to the vineyards and right to Saxon Switzerland.
To the Marienschacht (excerpt from de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marienschacht)
The Freiherrlich von Burgker hard coal works began on June 12, 1885 at 307.8 m above sea level with the sinking of the shaft, which had an oval cross-section.
In 1896, the 180 m long connecting line to the Hänichen coal branch line was financed by the Burgker works. Today, parts of the embankment of the former Windbergbahn serve as a foot and bike path (see also de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windbergbahn).
Since certain types of uranium ore were leading, SDAG Wismut took over the mine on January 1, 1968 and began mining ore coal. The uranium content averaged 0.124%.
After the cessation of the extraction work began on 1 January 1990 the safekeeping of the pit and the shaft, as well as the subsequent flooding. The shaft was backfilled, and the company site and the stockpile were renovated by Wismut GmbH until 1999.

So here is not only the mining and regional museum, because I met the operator by chance and took the flyer with me, I now know that you can also organize family celebrations and weddings with up to 120 guests in the building of the Marienschacht with the catering and decoration provided . I find an extremely cool environment with a breathtakingly beautiful view of Dresden.
