Bike Touring Highlight
The colliery Zollverein was an active from 1851 to 1986 hard coal mine in Essen.
It is today an architectural and industrial monument. Together with the directly adjacent coking plant Zollverein, the mines 12 and 1/2/8 of the mine have been UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 2001. Zollverein is the anchor point of the European Route of Industrial Heritage.
A piece of history with many events throughout the year.
Whether ice skating on the coke ovens of the coking plant or good food at the mine when the restaurants in Essen show up here once a year.
