The iron mines of Bourbach le Bas

Sentier géoloqique de Sentheim
68290 Bourbach-le-Bas

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.
