Grundlage der industriellen Entwicklung von Delémont waren die reichhaltigen Eisenerzvorkommen in der Region. Bis in die 1920er-Jahre förderten Bergleute den Rohstoff zutage, der anschliessend in den Hochöfen und Giessereien verarbeitet wurde. Das hundertjährige Schachtgebäude in Les Rondez ist eines der letzten Relikte aus der Zeit der Eisenerzförderung.

During this fascinating tour, you will discover buildings and unusual places, witnesses of the city’s urban, industrial and demographic development between the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. A local guide will offer anecdotes and explain the history behind these architectural witnesses.
