In this spectacular quarry, visitors can admire the impressively high rooms where the local Recht slate was mined. The 800 m underground trail includes an observation bridge offering a memorable panorama on the site.

The village of Recht (Sankt-Vith) was deeply marked by the mining of schist between the 18th and 20th century, with stone cutting being a well-developed trade.

Your guide will explain, along the visit, the geological characteristics of the mountain and how dangerous working in the mine could be. The museum features a collection of tools and creations made from the local blue stone.

A thrilling event

How about celebrating Halloween in the mine?

Tip: wear comfortable walking shoes and warm clothes.
