The village of Recht was shaped by quarrying and stonemasonry from the 18th to the beginning of the 20th century. Slate (Rechter Blaustein) was extracted from quarries above ground here for a very long time.

In 1890, the Margraff brothers from Recht decided to establish a lower tunnel alongside the upper one. This lower tunnel was reopened by Schieferstollen Recht VOG in 2007 and has since served as a visitor mine.

Over a distance of 800 meters, visitors can explore the mysterious world of blue rocks with large, impressive mining halls. During an exciting tour, visitors learn about the peculiarities of the regional geological history and the challenging and dangerous work of miners deep underground.

Last admissions at 4 p.m.
