    This rental lodge at the foot of the Bastenberg represents the great extent of mining in Ramsbeck. At the peak of mining, lead was smelted in a laborious process.

    Model of a pestle for the treatment of ores:
    Punching mills were an important part of mining to better process the ores. Before melting in the lead lending plant, the lead was cut further in Pochwerken (wet and dry pots), knocking off the pebble rock.

    In this small, beautifully designed park, you can marvel at many relics from the time of active mining.
