We recommend warm "outdoor" clothing, including warm socks and boots. Visitors must reckon with the possible contamination of their clothing.
Visitors before entering the mine are provided free of charge with:
- Safety helmets with lamps.
- Raincoats and gloves.
- Boots, if you do not have your own ones.
In the vicinity of the mineshaft Johannes coverage of mobile operators is very poor. Get all necessary information and tour itinerary in advance.
