Touristic Adventuretour in Eastern Germany´s Opencast

In this spectacular tour through the lunar landscapes of the mine, participants will be individually supervised at all times by an experienced instructor and support.


The aim is, in spite of a lot of fun and action with a higher incidence of experience, knowledge and "Landscape consciousness" to go home with.


The risk for the participants and vehicles is very low, but a high level of attention of the driver and front passenger is required because there are no barriers in the quarry site, signs and warnings.


Potholes, grooves and cross slopes are there no warning. So a real adventure!

After a basic 4x4-training we convoy through the different landscapes in and around the future Lake Ilse.


But explanations of the history and the characteristics of the mine should not be neglected. Focus is to manage the quarry site by jeep and know at a glance to learn. We will guide you gently to the limits of the possible. The route lies before us must sometimes be conquered literally: rains have eg flushed meter deep grooves from the mountain or the wind has obliterated all traces. In the
gorges in turn could be under the sand bottomless mud. Then only helps guide the vehicle to join forces to pull back and find a new way ...



Pictures from the tour



Sometimes the whole group must ran to push through the column. Here, teamwork is
the plan, even the passengers will be required.


The final flooding beginning of the legendary mine was in the spring of 2007. The flooding period will be 12 to 20 years. So we still use the historic opportunity to cross the lake with the future SUV.


The quarry site is landscaped really unique! You think you are  quickly placed in different landscapes on earth (desert, steppe, savanna) or to the moon or Mars ...


 We are very happy to go on thematic issues of particular interest to the participants a greater detail.


During the tour we always give our further experience and support each participant individually.


By this procedure, we can adapt to each participant and address personal skills and experience. At the end of the tour you will take a significant "extra" knowledge and experience home.
