26th annual conference, Schwäbisch-Gmünd, November 1 to 4, 2018

The 26th conference of the network of female firefighters Germany takes place in Schwäbisch-Gmünd from November 1 to 4 2018. The Congress aims to facilitate communication exchange and the advanced training of female fire fighters. The participants come from all categories of professional, full-time, industrial, volunteer and county fire brigades. In recent years it has also been our privilege to welcome colleagues from other countries.

The program offers a mix of theoretical and practical workshops in all areas of fire fighting. However, sports, self-awareness, personality development and women's issues are also on the program. There is time scheduled to share experiences. If you plan to attend the conference and want to extend your stay in Germany or Europe please let us know. We would be happy to assist you.

Thursday, November 1, 2018

Tiefer Stollen Visitor Mine

Iron ore was mined in Braunenberg from 1608 to 1939. During this time, the underground labyrinth grew up to six kilometres in length. Today the most interesting tunnels, shafts and corridors are open: as show mines and for the healing tunnel therapy. Already the entrance with the mine railway into the huge sandstone halls is a highlight. During the 800-metre tour through the tunnels, you will learn about the efforts and craftsmanship that the miners used to put into mining the ore.
