    The founding of the colliery was in 1872. 1877 was begun at a depth of 464 meters with the promotion. Since the first years were not so successful, had to be sunk deeper. In 1884 the shaft was 624 meters deep and thus the deepest shaft in the Ruhr area.

    Wonderfully spacious area, on which there is much to discover. Coffee and cake are waiting for cyclists and hikers in the Ewald Cafe.

    The Ewald colliery is the ideal starting point for tours around the Hoheward dump and the surrounding Cross districts.In summer you can also take a break here, sit in the shade and buy something to drink or eat.

    From 1877 to 2000, hard coal was mined at the Ewald colliery in Herten. Even record-breaking, because the deepest mining shaft in the Ruhr area was once located here. In the former heating center of the Ewald colliery you can follow very special spectacles today - the colorful shows in the RevuePalast Ruhr.
