The Grube Glasebach ("Glasebach pit") documents three centuries of mining in the Harz during which galena, chalcopyrite, iron ore and fluorspar were primarily mined. Visitors are led below ground and through two original and preserved mining floors used in the 18th and 19th centuries. The mined-out subterranean hollows visited feature geologic inclusions, colorful sinters, technical facilities, tools and a reconstructed water wheel.
