Tips

  • Alex von Bühren

    In addition to a wonderful time travel through the history of coal mining, you can enjoy the beautiful nature and make a detour to an old castle ruins with fantastic views over the Ruhr and the surrounding area. A very versatile hike.

    This Göpelhaus is also located on the mining circuit in Muttental. It is reminiscent of the Mosess shaft, which was sunk here in 1840. The tons-length Moses shaft dismantled the Anclam seam and reached down to the bottom of the St. Johannes Erbstollen. Cross cuts were made on the bottom of the Erbstollen into the seams of Stettin, Arrival and Love. After the four seams were exposed and dismantled, the Göpel shaft in Moses was shut down again in May 1847.

    Göpelschacht: A Göpelschacht, or horse gopel, is a conveying device in which a horse always runs in a circle and winds a conveyor rope onto a drum. The shaft itself could take several tons but could also lead deeper into the depths.

    The Muttental is very extensive and definitely worth it. Sturdy shoes are recommended.

    "... Since this shaft was too deep for the extraction with a tripod, the Göpelhaus was used for this ... Today hikers like to use the Göpelhaus as a shelter for a rest ..."

    On the mining circular route, there is a board with some information at every tunnel / mine, which even many "Ruhrpottlers" did not know yet.
    For this reason, it is worth stopping the hike for a moment to read up.

    "... No other region shows in such a diverse and impressive way the evidence of early mining coupled with a wild romance of the valley, forests and the leisurely babbling Muttenbach - knowing full well that you are still in the actually densely built-up Ruhr area. Here in Muttental the first coal was probably found in the Ruhr area. ... "
