Coal, steel and industry formed the Ruhr region, and turned it into the driving force of industrialization of 19th century Germany. The first mines were developed as early as the 16th century in Sprockhövel, south of the river Ruhr. Until today, you can find the remains of early mining industry here. These Tours lead you on trails that were used to transport the mined goods, past the ruins of this era, in a truly picturesque area that might even have one or two challenging trails in store for you!
