Mining in the Ruhr. From collieries to culture.

This was once the beating heart of German industry. The Ruhr valley and its people were forged by the hammering steelworks, the smoking chimneys and the vast collieries. What remains now are mighty monuments of industry where people go to enjoy cultural events and have fun. The ultimate example of industrial heritage in the Ruhr is the Zollverein mine in Essen, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. This former colliery and coking plant is now a centre for the arts and creative industries with a focus on design and architecture. It is also a major stop on the European Route of Industrial Heritage.
