… To know, where to make a tour.

The Fortuna Visitors´ Mine is located in the middle of the wonderful mixed hardwood/softwood forest – which means: not directly on the Lahn Cycle Path Lahnradweg. However, the Geo-Route which is also the coal and steel route Georoute Montanroute leads you from the stage town of Oberbiel through only 3 km of quiet side streets to the Fortuna pit. There you will not only be rewarded with a unique mining experience, but also with a beautiful beer garden attached to the neighbouring restaurant „ Zum Zechenhaus“.

For cyclists from 6 years of age, participation in one of our 1-hour Pit Tour is recommended – you can book your ticket online in advance.

The tip: the bike round tour!

On one amazing tour, enjoy the Goethe and optics City, the Fortuna Visitors´ Mine as well as the beautiful Dill valley.

The bike round trip takes you from Wetzlar through the Lahn Cycle Path Lahnradweg and through the Geo-Coal/Steel-Route GeoRoute Montanroute to lead you to our Visitors´Mine Museum “The Grube Fortuna”. Then it takes you back to Wetzlar through the Dill Cycle Path.
