At one time there were two separate cities, Eder and Oberstein. In 1933, the two cities were merged and renamed Ederborstein. The city is located near the Hunsrck Mountains in southwestern Germany. The city has a rich history. Europe's oldest diamond mine is here. For more than 500 years, various diamonds and pearls were mined here. Later, a museum of diamonds and pearls, an internationally renowned diamond research center and much more was built in the depths of the mine. There are numerous showrooms selling genuine and counterfeit pearls.

Tourists have to take the help of guides to get around the inside of the Ederwerstein diamond mine;

Ederuberstein's diamond mine has been world famous for a long time. In the eighteenth century, the region was known as the source of precious stones. By 1827, some locals in Ederwerstein had discovered the diamond mine in a place called Coopersell. They find various types of precious stones in the mines. At that time the cost of extracting diamonds from the mine was also relatively low. The area gradually became more densely populated with low-wage workers and low-cost gemstones. Several well-known gem factories were established in the area. The water of Nahi river flowing near the city was used in these factories. In these factories, gemstones brought from the mines were cut into a shape and transformed into expensive jewelery through various processes. As a result, the city continues to prosper economically.

Various scenes inside the diamond mine;

This diamond mine, one of the oldest and most famous gemstones in all of Europe, later developed into a huge museum of mine-centric museums. The location of the mine, however, is in a somewhat inaccessible place. Many tourists from different parts of the world come to see the mine in the middle of the forest surrounded by mountains. They were attracted to this diamond mining museum for a different experience. To enter the diamond mine, you have to get out of the car and walk a long way up the hill.

And like the five mines, you have to wear a special helmet on your head to go into its cavity. Spread over a huge area, this mine is now a mere sight to behold. Because, for more than 500 consecutive years from 1454 to 1870, billions of Deutsche Mark diamonds have been mined from this mine. Due to its use for many years, Ederberstein's mineral reserves were reduced.

Replicas of various historical diamonds are the center of attraction for tourists visiting the museum;

In this way it goes from the present page to the history book of the past. The mine has been abandoned for some time since then. Later, various steps were taken to turn the mine into a museum. The museum's collection has been rich for 81 years. Through this museum, tourists can learn about the history of various diamonds, gems and pearls, as well as the heritage and culture of the city of Ederborstein.

The city of Idahobastine is completely different from other cities in the Rhineland-Palatinate state. The city is quite tidy, clean. Many tourists can't resist the temptation to have a kind of flavor as an old-fashioned city without glamor. So they are not only satisfied with the museum of mining, they also visit the various places of interest throughout the city. For example, the world-famous Felsenkirch Church, the mountainous Oberstein Castle, the Arbeshkop Mountain - all attract tourists.

Many also like to spend time at the popular Christmas market in the Barge Oberstein area of the city. There is a very old theater hall here. Various cultural events are regularly organized here. Many people also flock to this theater to watch those local programs.

Felsenkirch Church

The city is surrounded by the fifteenth-century Felsenkirch Church. This historic white installation on the hill was built by Emperor Warrich IV. The interior of the church has all the wonderful paintings. Many tourists want to spend some time alone in the quiet, clean environment of the church.

Legend has it that two sons of the same king liked the same princess. Everyone knew the love of a prince and one secretly expressed that love. In one battle, two princes went out to fight. At this time the elder brother can know about the love of his younger brother. He became very angry with his younger brother and killed him. After returning from the war, the elder brother became very remorseful. Continue to burn with remorse. He built the church in memory of his younger brother. After the church was built, water began to rise in the form of bubbles from a place there, which is still emanating from that place today.

This gallery has various local specimens of different times.

Arbeshkop Mountain

Mount Arbeshkop is the highest peak in the state of Ronirland-Palatint. Many tourists choose this 26 feet high mountain for hiking. Just as they like to hike in the summer, they choose to ski in the snow-covered mountains in the winter. That is why there is a constant flow of tourists here.

Hansruk Powert

Another major attraction of the town of Idahoberstein is the 410 km long walk from Hansrock to the state of Saarland. Many people are thrilled to walk along a long bridge built between two hills.
