Erlebniswelt Wirtschaft: The new adventure tour


Our mining company VA Erzberg GmbH opens up its doors for visitors who can take a much closer and detailed look behind the scenes of iron ore production, in the form of an exciting experience tour. Have you ever seen the most modern down the hole drill Atlas Copco in action from a distance of just two meters? Or do you want to see what our explosive, which is pumped into the bore holes, looks like? Do you want to experience mining with all senses? The new tour makes it possible.

Visitors of this adventure tour get a detailed close-up look behind the scenes of surface mining from the spectacular blasts to the shipping of the final product. The Hauly – the biggest yellow cab of the world – takes you to six special locations where you experience ore mining firsthand. The tour is 90 minutes long and is – if requested – in English. Additionally, we offer onboard-movie clips and audio guides in English exclusively for this tour.

During the trip you also get the chance to visit the „Zentrum am Berg“, a globally unique research, development and training center for tunnel construction and tunneling safety. Initiated by the Montan-University of Leoben, it is a meeting point for students, researchers and rescue teams.
