The iron mines of Bourbach le Bas

" In the footsteps of the miners of the 19th and 18th centuries, between fields and forest, in the heart of the Ballons d'Alsace Regional Nature Park, visit two galleries, the historical site and the coal miners' square. "

Follow in the footsteps of the 19th century miners as if you were there! At the end of the 17th century, a colony of miners, most of them of Swiss origin, settled down to extract iron ore for the blast furnace in the Masevaux valley. The mines were exploited until the end of the 19th century. Tours are organised during the summer season. The tour includes a visit to two galleries, including the large mine (400 m long!) and the first historical sites.
