Dive beneath the ground with the fascinating C-mine expedition. Descent via a dark staircase to an underground corridor and explore former life in the mine across a number of original installations. The absolute high point of the trip: climbing up the mine shaft headframe. With its 200ft, the highest in Belgium. Enjoy the panoramic view over the green Limburg area. Taste culinary delights in the Vennestraat or visit Studio Pieter Stockmans afterwards. C-mine is a lively place with a specific range of activities for children and families.

Accessibility information

The extra long and narrow entrance stairs and the climb of the shaft tower are not feasible for everyone, but there are alternatives provided. As an alternative to the narrow entrance stairs, you can take a platform lift down the exit stairs. For people who do not want or are not able to climb up the 60m of the shaft tower, there is an equivalent viewing platform at 15m (not accessible to wheelchair users). The toilet in the nearby visitor centre is easily accessible, despite the slightly high toilet bowl and the push button on the sink.
