...ist am liebsten draußen und woanders...

This extremely exciting park is not even a kilometer from the city center. It gets its name, of course, from its location west of the city center. The Westpark is located on the site of the former Krupp-Stahl AG.
The whole Westpark extends around the event center with the beautiful name Jahrhunderthalle. The hall, built in 1902, was initially used for exhibitions. Only later was it converted into a blower machine hall for blast furnaces. In 2003 the hall became a cultural and event center again, as it was in the beginning. The green water tower, which can be seen from almost all parts of the park and serves as a landmark, stands high above the hall. At the same time, the Centennial Hall lies like a crater at the deepest point of the park and is framed by the aforementioned layers of height.
Numerous paths, ramps and bridges run through the Westpark. In this way they connect the artificially created terraces.

Today I actually caught "such a" tour that you can do ... but you don't have to ... except for the Welheim gardens, it wasn't a nice path ... 🥴In 1914 the United Welheim mine produced the first coal. A year earlier, the construction of a settlement for the employees of the colliery had already started, which was to extend over a decade. The Welheim settlement was built in the style of an English garden city: curved streets, self-contained street spaces, "picturesquely" arranged groups of houses, green spaces and gardens. All of this was intended to distract the miners from the tough everyday life, ensure harmony and, last but not least, bind the workers to their place of residence and thus to the colliery. In 1931 the mine ended and the mine was converted into a hydrogenation plant. This also changed the population structure of the until then purely miners' settlement. Due to its location in the middle of industrial plants, Welheim was exposed to numerous air raids during the Second World War. Despite severe damage, most of the original structure has been preserved to this day.

The art installation by Kisten Kaiser with the title Über (n) Ort catches the eye from afar. There are 23 thick, vertical pipes that are lined up at a certain distance in a 220 meter long line and carry a single, horizontal pipe. The vertical tubes increase in height towards the rear, which leads to an optical illusion when viewed. The entire installation is painted in the warning color yellow. Right from the start, the installation has LED lighting that turns the massive tubes into a floating, fragile line.In addition to thick birch vegetation in places, the heap also offers a large open space with smaller water holes and decorative stones

On the outskirts of Herne is the Teutoburgia settlement, which is considered to be one of the most beautiful miners' settlements in the Ruhr area. It was built around the same time as the Teutoburgia I / II colliery around 1909 to 1923. The colliery began mining coal in 1911, but was shut down again in 1925 due to unprofitability.
The Teutoburgia settlement is aligned with Baarestrasse as the axis towards the entrance to the colliery. Quiet back roads branch off in arches. The settlement is largely complete and its structure - like the Margarethenhöhe in Essen - is based on Ebenezer Howard's garden city concept. Most of the houses are semi-detached or terraced. Despite the architectural similarity, they visually differ significantly from each other and form an extremely varied landscape.In the north you come across the striking headframe of the colliery on a walk. It has been preserved as a monument and is a landmark in a small park, the Teutoburgia Art Forest.

Beautiful photos. I love them all, you are really good. I love in particular the last but one photo of the sky with two aircraft engine condensation trails (con-trails) and the wood pyramid at a distance - fantastic.
