    Even the sight of the huge winding tower is worth a visit to the Bochum mining museum.

    The German Mining Museum Bochum (DBM) provides a comprehensive insight into the worldwide mining of all mineral resources from prehistoric times to the present day. It shows not only technical, but also extensive mineralogical and unique (art) historical collection items. It is the most important mining museum in the world and also the German research museum of the Leibniz Association for georesources.
    Our exhibitions and the underground mine, which is true to the original, provide visitors with an insight into the world of mining. In addition, the headframe offers a fantastic view over Bochum and the Ruhr area.

    A system of stretches and struts at a depth of around 20 meters and a length of around 2.5 kilometers explains the tunneling and extraction of coal as well as some safety aspects under almost realistic conditions. However, the routes have never been used to extract mineral resources and were only created for the purpose of demonstration.
