A tour at Blegny includes a video presentation called Stones that Burn, a short self guided surface visit and an underground tour. The underground tour includes the descend with a mine elevator. Nearby is Shaft Marie, a museum of mining history and tunnel construction which is located in a former shaft from 1816. There is surface equipment of a coal mine and a detailed history of mining from the first open cast mines to underground coal mining.
On the premises of the mine a so-called road train transports visitors between the attractions. This is actually a tractor with waggons, which is decorated like a comic railroad. Obviously intended for children, it offers explanations from a sound system for the adults. The old slag heap, where the rocks removed from the mine were pilled, are now a biotope. The rock around the coal is primarly shist. Those rocks are not a good soil for plants, nevertheless many plants have started to grow on the formerly barren hill.
