    In Iba the mining of cobalt ore was carried out in the 19th century and around 100 years later, in the 50s of the 20th century, the mining of heavy spar.
    A notice board at the entrance to the Kurfürsten-Stollen indicates that mining was stopped in 1960.
    In August 2009, the approximately 200-year-old electoral gallery in Iba was presented to the public again.
    The excavation of the tunnel entrance was a village renewal project.
    A distance of approx. 100 m is illuminated by means of a solar system with a built-in timer - thanks to this technical solution, the tunnel can be viewed around the clock, so to speak.
    At the end of the illuminated route, a cart with a miner's dummy was set up. Information boards at the tunnel entrance provide information about the mining history in Bebra-Iba.
    In the outdoor area, lorries are exhibited, as well as a cozy seating area to take a break.

    The Kurfürstenstollen is located directly on the Iba nature trail. There has been evidence of mining in the Richelsdorf Mountains since 1460. Since then, Iba has been closely associated with mining, making it the largest village in the former Rotenburg district. Cobalt ore and barite (barite) were mainly mined in the tunnels built around 1800. It reaches 1200 meters into the mountain.
