    The "most fascinating place for skating nationwide" according to travel guide Marco Polo: On the UNESCO World Heritage Zollverein offer the Zollverein Foundation with the ZOLLVEREIN® ice rink four weeks of ice skating pleasure for the whole family. Kufenkünstler and all those who want to be there, can make pirouettes there, whiz over the ice or carefully do their first steps on the smooth ice surface.
    But for spectators, too, the impressive industrial architecture, the mirror-smooth 1,800 square meters of space along the imposing coke ovens, rust-red pipes and high fireplaces offer a unique experience. After dark, when the light installation by Jonathan Speirs and Mark Major dips the coking plant Zollverein into colorful light, the skaters experience a winter romance of a very special kind. A cozy winter village offers refreshment with hot drinks and snacks.

    The coking plant Zollverein in Essen-Stoppenberg was built in the years 1957-61 in a spatial-functional connection to the shaft XII of the colliery Zollverein. In 1964, it reached its maximum capacity for the first time and produced 5000 tons of coke per day. In the early 1970s, the Zollverein coking plant was expanded to become one of the world's largest facilities. Around 1000 people worked here, many of them in shifts.

    The coking plant Zollverein in Essen was active from 1961 to 1993 and at that time was considered the most modern coking plant in Europe.
    It is today an architectural world heritage and industrial monument. Together with the directly adjacent Zeche Zollverein, the former coking plant was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2001.
    A guide, e.g. "Through coke oven and master walk", always pay!

    The cokers of the Zeche Zollverein. Be sure to do a tour as you will not get into the building otherwise.

    Extensive grounds with the coking plant and the two Zechentürmen - industrial culture, which is gradually recaptured by nature.
