The silver mines in Kongsberg were in operation from 1623 until 1958. At most more than 4000 people worked in the mining industry in Kongsberg (1770). German mining engineers were used from the start and for more than two centuries, and are the cause for all the German names on mines and streets in Kongsberg.
A total of more than 1,3 million kg silver were taken out of the mountain west and northwest of the town Kongsberg.
The Kongsberg silver mines are now protected as historical sites, collecting inside the mines and outside on the dumps is illegal.

NOTE: Most of the Kongsberg silver mining district is located within the Kongsberg municipality, but some mines, for example the Vinoren silver mines are located outside the Kongsberg municipality and in the Flesberg municipality. See therefore also the entry Flesberg municipality.
