    I can only recommend it to anyone who has not been there before. Just a bomb, this place. Be it for hiking or cycling, just a dream!
    You should just be back at the ferry in time to catch the last one!

    "... The Herberholz colliery union came into being in the middle of the Muttental in 1855/56.
    The mining fields below the St. Johannes Erbstollen were to be dismantled by consolidating the local tunnel operations. The colliery was named after the Obersteiger Herberholz, who forced the merger.
    By merging individual tunnels and with the transition to civil engineering, a decisive step was taken that was also to be of great importance for industrial development.
    The coal mined from the Herberholz colliery was brought to light through the "Elisabeth" shaft of the "Louisenglück" colliery. The production was about 500,000 bushels (29,000 tons) of coal per year. The shaft that existed here on Herberholz was used for ventilation and for driving through the facility. ... "

    Hard coal has been mined here in the region for centuries. The Muttental mining trail is a great opportunity to learn more about coal mining in this area. Further information can be found at: netreisetagebuch.de/bergbauwanderweg-muttental

    Not far behind the prayer house is the mining exhibition at the Herberholz colliery. A collection of tools and objects can be viewed freely all year round on the large outdoor area. The exhibition focuses in particular on the progress of technology. Expansion signs are shown as well as tools, drills, mining trucks and much more. The Zechenhaus itself offers a small collection on historical mining on weekends and public holidays. In addition, there is the possibility of refreshment here during the opening times.
