 Tour de France: A new arrival in 2024 envisaged provided by Sports.fr Cycling-Tour de France: an arrival far from the Champs-Elysées in 2024 envisaged by the mayor of the capital for several weeks, the subject is On the lips of many people. While the Paris 2024 Olympic Games must open on July 26, the Tour de France should end at the same period. A rumor recently came from Italy suggesting that Nice would welcome the conclusion of the Grande Boucle, which would set off three weeks before Florence.

With investments of 1.5 million euros, the “Markus-Röhling-Stolln” visitor mine in Annaberg-Buchholz has created a new tour. Mining and rocks were really blown up and demolished, said the chairman of the sponsoring association, Marc Schwan, on Friday at the opening. The work was carried out when the visitor mine was operated ongoing. So far, the number of visitors was limited because the groups could not meet on the way underground. The tour can remedy the situation, explained Schwan. An average of around 30,000 visitors a year were counted before corona pandemic.

The pit was once one of the most important in the Annaberg district. From the 16th to 19th centuries, cobalt and silver were funded, from 1947 to 1952 the bismuth searched for uranium ore. Today the Stolln belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage Site Montan region Erzgebirge/Krušnohoří. During the tour, the different eras of mining are brought close. The visitors drive in with the mine railway. Machines and a 9 meter high, functional water wheel can also be seen underground. The new expansion now has more to visit from the old mining, emphasized Schwan.
