On a ride with the mine railway you arrives deep into the heart of the mountain.  
More than 1000 years of mining history have leave behind obvious traces in the Harz mountains. The earliest documented verifiable mining of ore at the Rammelsberg near Goslar dated in the year 968. But already long before was dug at many points in the Harz for ore.

Throughout the region there are now a variety of museums and historic mines. They have all the major Harz industry in the last millennium on the subject. Some of the main ones are listed here.
