If you drive from the west to Clausthal you will soon realize that mining was done here, because the winding tower of Ottiliae shaft can be seen from far away. It is one of the most famous montane sights of the Harz Mountains and is also one of the oldest preserved iron pitheads in Central Europe.
The shaft owes its name to Ernst Hermann Ottiliae, the first mining captain after the annexation of the Kingdom of Hanover to Prussia (since 1868). It was here that the ore from the entire Clausthal mining district was brought to the surface and prepared in the huge central processing plant for further processing in the smelters. After mining in the Upper Harz Mountains was discontinued in 1930, the gradient of the Ottiliae shaft was used to generate electricity until 1980.

What today contributes to the uniqueness of the idyllic cultural landscape was once an industrial infrastructure.
