Embark on a journey to the center of the Earth on the mining site of Wallers Arenberg, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Learn about the mining area through the many Earthcaches and activities created for the occasion.
You will have the opportunity to visit the galleries, the hanging room, mining buildings, the lamp room and the sets of the film Germinal, and to admire the view from the top of the headframe.
The visit is optional. For a better organisation, please book your visit time in here:
Payment is made on site at the tourist office at 7 € fee (€ 4 for 12-18 years)
Such as Sherlock Holmes, solve puzzles designed for you at the Mystery Academy which will be held in the room Claude Berri of the mining site of Wallers Arenberg.
About different themes, we have developed 25 puzzles to solve alone or in groups, each one of them leading you to a cache.
We speak several languages (French, English, German, Dutch and Spanish) and we can help you if needed.
Also, no need to speak French: the puzzles are created so all nationalities could solve them (colour coding, numbers, encryption...)
Two sessions are planned, book your place by buying the entry ticket and your roadbook in here:
Warning: the number of places per session is limited, book now.
Take part in an expedition like Jacques Cousteau’s at the river port of Saint Amand Les Eaux.
