Our booth in the Grand Theatre
The streets surrounding the Theatre are full of tents and marquees filled with a huge range of not only minerals but also fossils, meteorites and gems, for wholesale and collectors. The atmosphere is likened to a Bazaar.
Streets lined with stalls
The show is open to professionals on Thursday and Friday, and the public on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets for the public can be purchased on the gate on Saturday and Sunday.
Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines is a natural tourist area, and is located on the “Route d’Argent” or The Silver road at the heart of the Lièpvre Valley, between Strasbourg and Colmar, 20km west of Sélestat, 20km east of Saint-Dié, in the heart of the Vosges mountains.
This is a great mineral show, set in a wonderful locale. Beautiful scenery, great food and fine wine help make this show a must!
