Bochum - Deutsches Bergbau-Museum - Eisenerzbergwerk Kammerbau

The department of iron ore mining in the visitor mine shows how in North Germany till the end of the 1970s iron ore was diminished. The mining system is called chamber construction.

 

Beside the chambers a part of the mountains stops in each case as weight-bearing parties, so that the miner's created hollow cavities stay open and do not get broken.
