LWL-Industriemuseum Zeche Zollern

Discover Industrial Culture

Welcome to the "castle of labour" – the probably most beautiful colliery in the Ruhr Area was already a great attraction in its day. And it has lost none of its charm today. With its magnificent brick façade and opulent gables, the site is actually more reminiscent of an aristocratic residence than a coal mine. It is hard to imagine that the collection of buildings was to be demolished after its closure in the 1960s. Experience how tough the living and working conditions used to be in coal mining in the museum's permanent exhibition and marvel at the large machine hall with its impressive Art Nouveau portal.
