The Zollern Colliery
Mining and culture in a "castle of labour"
The Zollern colliery in Dortmund is one of the most beautiful testimonies to Germany's industrial past. The engine house with its stained-glass Art Nouveau entrance is an industrial heritage icon made of steel and glass. Explore this "castle of labour", look behind the magnificent brick facades, climb the pithead frame, follow the path of coal and immerse yourself in a world of heavy labour underground.
