    Once a year the ONCE UPON A TIME takes place on Zollern. We visited the event yesterday and were thrilled!
    The winding tower can be climbed and all buildings can be visited and visited. You will find true industrial culture here.

    Musterzeche in Dortmund Bövinghausen.
    A great industrial museum and with the "horse stable" an excellent restaurant.

    The Zeche Zollern II/IV (translated: Zollern II/IV Colliery) is located in the northwestern suburb of Bövinghausen of Dortmund, Germany. The Gelsenkirchener Bergwerks-AG projected Zollern in 1898 as a model colliery on a new site. Most of the buildings of the colliery were built in solid brickwork by the architect Paul Knobbe and were completed in 1904 with the central engine house, in which the most up-to-date generators and machinery used in the colliery were housed. The architecture and state-of-the-art technology support the transition of Gothic-revival to Art Nouveau and the industrialization of the early 1900s.

    This coal mine with the double winding tower, the Doppelbock, is really great. The view of the Ruhr area from the platform of the winding tower is beautiful, but not for people with a fear of heights, because you can see through the gratings.

    Nice stop, but since it was very busy also quite a long wait. First came the coffee, a good 15 min. Later, the cake. :-(

    The disused coal mine Zeche Zollern is now an industrial museum and definitely worth a visit! The "Pferdestall" restaurant is also located on the site of the site where the colliery's stable was actually once. A lunch visit for coffee and cake as well as for dinner is worthwhile (just let us know at the entrance that you want to go to the restaurant, there is no admission fee).

    Pure industrial culture and history. A visit to the Pferdestall restaurant is an absolute must. A visit to the museum should be included.

    The former colliery is an absolute gem. Give yourself the time - you can still feel the hardness of the work 😥

    Hello hikers, after a tip from Komood about Zollern: On September 12th, you can visit the remains of the mine buildings and an original steam-powered winder that has been carefully and lovingly cared for at Zeche Gneisenau, exciting, believes it me. Have fun and good luck
