  • A historic place that has been turned into a fantastic “park” with paths around all the remaining buildings and transport-ways as well as museums, restaurant etc. I was amazed how big this industry was. This should be one of your main stops on a Ruhr-tour to see the old industrial activity and old technology!

  • I assume, it's more interesting in summer. Looks nice anyway. The outdoor beer garden and the restaurant "casino" looks great. Didn't eat there, but we got a close look into the kitchen. Seems fine ;)

  • Definitely worth visit if you are in Essen. For everybody loving industrial environment it is must to see place. It is worth to walk around the area and explore it whole. I also took the guided trip to find out a little bit about the mine and area history. It was very interesting experience.

  • Not your average day trip, but quite interesting to see how they did coal mining and how it changed over a century. Very large complex and loads of things to see but you need a registered guide how can get you into the buildings. Best in a group to share the costs. Outside on top you get a great view of the area in all directions as it is quite flat. There is also a restaurant close by which is poor, and a much better one within five minutes of walking distance. Interesting location for events as well as you can rent parts of the buildings.

  • Great place to visit to know more about coal mining. Better if booked with a tour guide. Quite easy to reach. Restaurants near by. The guided tour that we took was almost 2 hours. The guide was very helpful and had a great knowledge of the history.
