Not only interesting for crystal and spotlight craft enthusiasts and especially the newly created possibility to visit the museum virtually. I also really liked the film in which we are taken into the mountain and can experience on the spot how such a gap is found and opened. This is also a great option for people who are perhaps no longer able to walk uphill.
