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

    1871 began the history of the coal mine Ewald. 21 trades, including the Essen-based entrepreneur and namesake Ewald Hilger, founded the mine in the south of Herten. After laborious beginnings, the mine developed, especially after the Second World War with at times more than 4,000 miners to the most productive mine in the Ruhr. On April 28, 2000, coal production was discontinued. A striking colliery architecture from three different mining epochs, such as the Malakow Tower (1888), shaft 2 with manhole (1928) and the double strut scaffolding of the Zollverein architect Fritz Schupp over the central shaft 7 of 1955, characterizes the location. As early as 2002, the first new jobs were created here. 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, whose core is the neighboring largest stockpile landscape in Europe. The two curved steel arches of the spectacular "Horizontobservatorium" form a landmark that can be seen from afar, as well as the large horizontal sundial with its obelisk in the antique style.

    Ewald colliery -many future location in Herten
    From 1877 to 2000 hard coal was mined at the coal mine Ewald in Herten. Even record-breaking, because here was once the deepest mining shaft of the Ruhr area. Since its closure, an exciting change is taking place at the mine. Today you will find there the visitor center of the Hoheward heap, the RevuePalast Ruhr and soon a MotorWorld. Likewise, the Ewald colliery is an attractive commercial location. You can explore the historical grounds with the monument-protected colliery buildings and shaft structures on the Ewaldpromenade.

    Colorful colors and a lot of glitter
    Today you can follow very special spectacles in the former heating center of the Ewald colliery - the colorful shows in the RevierPalast Ruhr. In the past, hard coal was mined here, and now only a few buildings and conveyors are evidence of the past. New life with powerful travesty shows under sparkling lights now fills the walls. Here you will experience a lot of glitter on sumptuous costumes, artistically made-up artists, exciting voices and great performances - all year round and in various shows.

    New horizons in multiple senses
    New horizons open up at the Ewald colliery not only as a future location with ever-evolving trade, but also in the exhibition of the same name in the pay and light hall of the colliery. The exhibition "New Horizons - In the Footsteps of Time" deals with the topics of energy, seasons and planets and explains interesting facts on the Horiziontobservatorium and the sundial on the Hoheward heap. The Halde Hoheward and Hoppenbruch, the largest stockpile landscape in Europe, you will find right next door and you can explore them on a walk, by bike or even on hiking or Segway tours.
