    Korkus or the Korkus is a corridor designation in the southeast Eschweiler in the triangle of the districts Nothberg, Scherpenseel and Volkenrath between those into the Inde flowing brooks Omerbach and Otterbach. The local street Im Korkus is a side street of Volkenrather Straße and Knippmühle. The cork is the nature reserve ACK-029.
    Erzgrube To Good Hope [edit | Edit]
    From the Eschweiler mine club we know that he had his ore mine "good hope" there already at the so-called "Düsteböschche" a few years after its commissioning 1880-1884 disappointed again close because you came across a long-exploited pit field, whose over 2,000 Years old tunnels were partly very well preserved. These ore galleries can be followed from "Düvelskuhl" to Hamich and Wenau.

    It's hard to imagine that this hard, untouched piece of earth used to be worked so hard here many years ago. Has something from Sleeping Beauty 😊

    As in the jungle, after the ruin you have to look for something. It is only to be seen, if one stands before it.
