VISITOR'S MY RAMSBECK
Sauerland's heydays are those of mining in the last century. In the area you will find quarries and memories of this mining everywhere.
The largest mine in Sauerland is right below our lodge! Via the museum in Ramsbeck, on the other side of the mountain, you can go on an adventure deep underground. Via the original train you drive deep into the mine and start a fascinating tour through the tunnel systems and large machines.
