Old Pb Zn Cu Ag-mine owned by the Belgian company Vieille-Montagne from 1915-2005.

The mine, which closed in 1957, worked several lead- and zinc-bearing quartz-siderite veins hosted by lower Devonian schists.
Located 2 km south of Langenfeld and 9 km NW of Mayen.

Now it's a tourist mine, opened in 2011.
