Unesco World Heritage Foundation Zollverein Essen

Project Description

In the 1930s, up to 12,000 tons of hard coal were mined here daily; Today, the Zollverein coal mine Zollverein is the landmark of a region that has been in constant change for decades. For a century, winding towers and blast furnaces have shaped the image of the Ruhr area. Today, they represent the structural change of the region – the former center of the mining industry transformed the former production sites into venues with the special charm of industrial culture.

Impressively, this can be seen on the grounds of the Zeche Zollverein. The last shift „at Zollverein“ ended in December 1986, the adjoining coking plant closed in 1993. The area was renovated, listed and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2001.

Today, the colliery and coking plant are both a museum and a venue for events and exhibitions. The monument path ZOLLVEREIN®, which leads through the authentically preserved facilities, reminds of its former use.
