    The settlement Teutoburgia (1909-23) is one of the most beautiful and best preserved mining village in the Ruhr area. In the artificial forest, listen to the sounds from the depths (miners at work)

    A whole settlement full of mine houses beautifully restored in the late 80s / early 90s. Each is a little different! All architecture students in the Ruhr area are carted through here. Film set at "Peter Strom" - before restoration!

    The houses have been lovingly preserved and individually decorated / designed.

    The Teutoburgia settlement is aligned with the entrance to the colliery with Baarestrasse as the axis. Quiet side streets branch off in arches. The settlement is largely complete and its structure - like the Margarethenhöhe in Essen - is based on the garden city concept by Ebenezer Howard. Most of the houses are semi-detached or terraced. Despite the architectural similarity, they visually differ significantly from each other and form an extremely varied townscape. Each residential unit has its own garden. The front gardens are mostly open with only a few hedges and fences. In the 1990s, the entire estate was extensively renovated and refurbished as part of the IBA Emscher Park International Building Exhibition. ... "
