Our extensive á la carte menu, offering dishes hailing from different parts of the world, has been enriched with the Silesian Menu, inspired by recipes of House Donnersmarck.

A place where a kids corner coexists with exhibition space. At weekends, it is a venue of concerts and cooking workshops, and on weekdays – of lessons on Silesian traditions. This place is teeming with life!

Tourism

“Szyb Maciej” is a mine in miniature. The sightseeing route leads from the top of the shaft tower through the heart of the mine – the winding machine, through a peek into the underground. There is a slag heap within the perimeter of the complex, entered in the register of monuments, in front of which there sits a stage – a former overpass linking the complex to Gliwice. We are the only facility in the Province of Silesia which is part of the Industrial Monuments Route and “Silesian Tastes” Culinary Route at the same time.

 

Note! Guided tours must be booked in advance!

 

The “Maciej” shaft, part of the history of the “Concordia” mine, has been transformed into a tourist, recreational, and cultural complex. A one hour meeting with the past in the company of a guide allows to learn how the mine operated, to see how the shaft was innovatively transformed into a water intake, and to have a peek into …the depths of the earth. The “Szyb Maciej” complex is the only preserved authentic mine of the kind in Europe. The complex is included in the register of monuments. It is also part of the Industrial Monuments Trail and the Silesian Tastes Culinary Trail.

 

The greatest highlight of “Szyb Maciej” are:

  • Preserved buildings and furnishings of the former mine from the early 20th century,
  • Possibility of getting down to the shaft water intake and learning about its origins,
  • Restaurant organised on two levels in the main building of the mine,
  • Possibility of seeing Zabrze and Gliwice from a viewing platform on the shaft tower,
  • Possibility of attending a demonstration of the winding machine operation,
  • Example of sustainable revitalisation of a former mining complex.
