Fodor's Review

Silver mines are a but more romantic than a run-of-the-mill coal mine, and this silver museum combines all manner of medieval mining and minting equipment with the real deal: the chance to tour a medieval silver mine. It's fun, but if you're claustrophobic it's worth nothing that the tunnel is a bit tight, and you're underground for about 30 minutes. The city boasted some of the deepest mines in the world back in the 16th century, and the trek nowadays will probably make

you glad you weren't a miner.
