Besides the brilliant state that Zeche Zollern presents itself in, it is also surprisingly cheap to access and has a lot to offer. Exhibitions, architecture, educational stuff and a lot of local history. Unfortunately, we had only two hours to spare, but I am sure...More

This museum is a lovingly renovated industrial monument. It is a very authentic witness from the time were industrial buildings have been not only functional. Very nice the Jugendstil entrance portal. Very suitable for families (even on the financial side).
