Idar-Oberstein: Gems & Prospecting - USO Wiesbaden - Wiesbaden

It may be spring break but that doesn’t mean the kiddos can’t learn something while having some fun too! We will travel to the quaint town of Idar-Oberstein to begin our day at the Gemstone Museum with a guided tour. All of the world’s existing gemstones can be admired here between rough and cut stones and artfully crafted sculptures. Enjoy lunch on your own, shop for bargains on jewelry and decorations made from various gems and stones, and explore the town…be sure to visit the Church in the Rock! In the afternoon we will stop at the only European gemstone mine open to visitors. Along with the mine shafts that can be explored, the camp is available to treasure hunters who wish to do a little “prospecting’ of their own. Tour price includes transportation, guided museum visit, gemstone mine entrance, prospecting fee, and USO Escort. Space is limited—so sign up soon!
