    The huge plant is not 100 years old. It was built in the Bauhaus style and is considered the most beautiful mine in the world. She gave thousands of jobs, everything was about coal and coke. Today it is a tourist magnet.

    A model of coal mine and coking plant made of rusty steel.

    Not just cultural heritage, but a total work of art, which unfortunately partly rallied in front of him. But definitely worth seeing, it is best to explore all angles.

    Zeche Zollverein is always worth a stop, because here too there is food and drinks for every purse and then this unmistakable industrial charm in the former round thickener of coal washing at the mine.

    All of a sudden you are standing on the grounds of Zollverein.
    Gradually there were trees on both sides of the track and then you stand in the middle of the huge industrial plant from the past.
    So you cycle along old pipe routes past the various buildings and think: "What must it have looked like when the facilities were still in operation?".

    An absolute must, if you want to get to know the history of mining and the Ruhr area.
    In the museum one learns a lot about the people here and the change that the Ruhrgebiet has gone through.
    (in a corner is a video with "Fritz Eckenga", who talks beautifully on Ruhrpöttisch.) Many have something against the expression Ruhrpottplatt.)

    Not only for Ruhrpottler worth a visit.

    A tour and the visit of the Ruhr Museum is highly recommended. In any case, once to change the car circulation!
