Asse information centre

The Asse information centre is located in the immediate vicinity of the Asse II mine. As well as housing an exhibition, the centre is also used to hold regular talks and events. Visiting the information centre is free.

The Asse information centre provides information on the history and geology of the Asse II mine, on current work, and on the plans to retrieve waste from the mine. In the Asse information centre café, staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have on these subjects.


School classes can use the centre as an out-of-school learning destination to learn about the Asse mine or the final disposal of radioactive waste. We also look forward to welcoming you at talks and on virtual tours. Please contact us to make an appointment.

Inside the mine

As visitor tours of the mine are booked up for the foreseeable future, no new appointments are currently being allocated. During this time, underground visits to the Asse II mine are only possible in exceptional cases for people with a justified professional or political interest.

Alternatively, we also offer a virtual tour using VR headsets at the Asse information centre or online so that you can continue to learn about the Asse II mine and the retrieval of waste. The virtual tour of the mine reveals the status of the work through panoramic images.

If the above exception applies to you or you would like to make an appointment for a virtual tour or a surface visit to the construction site, please do not hesitate to contact us at: info-asse(at)

Virtual tours

If you are keen to go on a tour of the Asse II mine and would like to get a first impression, or if a mine tour isn’t possible for you, then our 360-degree tour offers a virtual alternative.
