Roman Mine Meurin

A mine from a bird´s-eye view

To begin, you  will descend into the underground working world of Roman miners and soldiers, but you  won’t be needing torches or flashlights. The ancient mine was uncovered by the modern-day excavation of pumice stone which led to the removal of large sections of the old mine ceiling. Therefore, we have easily accessible walkways, ramps and steps to guide us not only through the system of tunnels, but also out of it. This is the only mine that can be viewed  from a bird’s eye view.

Roman Mine from a birds eye view

A place full of history

Round about 2.000 years ago, pumice layers, over 4 meters (13 feet) thick, were covering the Roman mine preserving the ancient tunnel system.  Today the original excavation site is protected by means of a dome like hall made of steel, glass and plastic and allows for comfortable exploration of the tunnel system. While navigating through the tunnels and chambers, one can get a feel of how narrow walkways, poor light, and dust filled air were a part of the everyday life of a Roman miner.

Bird’s-eye view

Well-accessible walkways, ramps and stairs lead visitors not only through the tunnels, but also over them. It is said to be the only mine that can be viewed from a bird’s-eye view. Therefore, parts of the Roman Mine are accessible for wheelchairs.
