Try the train ride into the King's Silver Mine, a thrilling ride 342 metres below the surface and 2,300 metres inside the mountain itself. The train stops here and the rest is on foot, taking visitors 1070 metres underground, or 560 metres below sea level. Remember to wear something warm, it's only about +6 degrees inside the mine itself. The train ride takes a total of 25 minutes and can seem a bit noisy. Therefore it might be a good idea to bring some earplugs.
The tour into and down the mine is not suitable for disabled or physically impaired visitors and the absolute minimum age limit is 3 years. The walk takes about 65 minutes and covers 800 metres. The tour also involves some stairs and the trip up and down is equivalent to about 5 floors.
It may be a good idea to arrive 15 minutes before the start of the tour. Meet at Malmveien 11, Saggrenda, 8 km from Kongsberg centre towards Notodden.
