    The Zeche Zollern is a decommissioned hard coal mine in the northwest of the city of Dortmund, in the district Bövinghausen.
    The Zollern II / IV coal mine is today one of eight museum locations of the decentralized LWL industrial museum, which also has its headquarters here. The coal mine is an anchor point of the Route of Industrial Culture in the Ruhr Area and the European Route of Industrial Heritage.

    The machine hall of the Zollern colliery was not demolished as planned, but was the first industrial building in Germany to be listed. The central machine hall of the colliery was at that time no longer executed in solid construction, but in the hope of faster completion than a brick-filled iron truss construction. The Berlin architect Bruno Möhring (1863-1929) provided the decoration of the machine hall with details in Art Nouveau forms, the highlight of which was the main entrance with colored glazing.

    There were enough coal mines, conveyor frames and machine halls in the former mining area of ​​Dortmund. The Zeche Zollern is doing here, so I find an exception. The whole area is rather castle-like and not functional sober. For me one of the most beautiful coal mine ever. Convince yourself ...
