SIGHTSEEING

Join an exciting tour in the King’s mine Wednesday 18th! In Kongsberg you may take a small train 2,3 km into the mountain. Here you will have a guided tour for about 1 hour, and the train takes you safely out again. The history of Kongsberg and this region is grounded on the mining business, and the silver was property of the Danish – Norwegian king. The mining started in 1623. It ended in 1957 due to the cost of mining. Some say there still is lot of silver left in our mountains…

Due to heavy rain the mines is closed because of flooding. We have managed to get a good alternative and will visit THE NORWEGIAN MINING MUSEUM. We hope everyone will enjoy the new sigthseeing object. Silvermines opened again.

The tour will be free of charge and the bus will leave at 12:15 and 14:15 hours from the Dining Hall. The sightseeing trip will take approx. 2 hours in total before the bus returns.

Please make your booking at The Info Centre before tuesday 17th 15:00 (03:00 pm) as we need to know how many persons that will be participating.
