    A nice view over the old colliery. Silverster at the beginning of the new year is hell here. But also on different weekends are here many events.

    The history of the Ewald colliery began in 1871. 21 trades, including the Essen entrepreneur and namesake Ewald Hilger, founded the mine in the south of Herten. After arduous beginnings, the colliery developed into the most productive colliery in the Ruhr area, especially after the Second World War, with over 4,000 miners at times. On April 28, 2000, coal production was stopped. A distinctive colliery architecture from three different mining eras, such as the Malakow Tower (1888), Shaft 2 with shaft hall (1928) and the double strut frame by Zollverein architect Fritz Schupp above central shaft 7 from 1955, characterize the location. The first new jobs were created here as early as 2002. Meanwhile, the "future location Ewald" stands for a modern and sustainable structural change. In addition to the settlement of various international companies and the hydrogen competence center, the Ewald colliery also combines leisure and culture in an exciting and entertaining way. The colliery is part of the Hoheward Landscape Park, the core of which is the neighboring largest dump landscape in Europe. The two curved steel arches of the spectacular "Horizon Observatory" form a landmark that can be seen from afar, as does the large horizontal sundial with obelisk based on an ancient model.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zeche_Ewald

    The visitors center Hoheward with the old colliery Ewald is suitable for the arrival by car very well and offers also plenty of parking possibilities.

    Until the late 90s one of the largest shaft systems in Germany. Today a future location, a place for art and culture and the largest slag heap in Europe.

    Industrial culture always works, the facility has a bit of "lost places" and is always worth a visit.

    "... 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.
    You can explore the historical facilities with the listed colliery buildings and shaft frames via the Ewald promenade.
    The Hoheward and Hoppenbruch dumps, the largest dump landscape in Europe, are right next door and can be explored on a walk, by bike or even while hiking. ... "

    In the northwestern part of the heap, above the viewing balcony 1, there is the Ewald gallery, a steel viewing tower from which there is a very good view of the former colliery and the city center of Herten.
