Mining Traces on Eisernhardt Mountain

The “Eisernhardt” is a mountain in the urban area of Siegen. Up here, high above the iron valley and the Leimbach stream, numerous traces of mining can still be found. There are two circular routes, one 4 km and the other 5 km long. Along the way, there are over 24 stations with explanations in texts and pictures.

An authentic impression is conveyed by sink holes, slag heaps and hollow paths to tunnel entrances, which were reconstructed by mining enthusiasts. Some of these are even safe to walk into for a few metres.

Breathtaking views over the Siegerland complement the eventful hike under the expert guidance of a member of the Verein für Siegerländer Bergbau e. V. (Association for Mining in Siegerland).
A knowledgeable member of the Mining Association accompanies visitors on an interesting hike which also offers impressive views over the Siegerland region.
