The Ruhr area is one of the largest and oldest industrial areas in the world, at the same time the center of trade and services. Imposing industrial plants, extensive shopping centers, impressive high-rise administrative buildings, diverse housing developments, a tightly woven network of expressways, railways and canals have honed the many facets of this landscape. But also charming lakes, spacious green landscapes, large contiguous forests and newly created greenery on former industrial areas give the urban network its unmistakable scenic charm.
The colliery was built between 1928 and 1932 by the industrial architects Fritz Schupp and Martin Kremmer. With its significant silhouette and its overall aesthetic concept, which is committed to the Bauhaus style, the mine was considered the most modern and most beautiful mine in the world. It went into operation in 1932 and worked until the 80s, the coking plant built later even into the 90s of the 20th century. Today "Zollverein" is an important, vital and growing cultural center and at the same time a mirror of the structural change in the region. Since December 2001 "Zollverein" has been a World Heritage Site of UNESCO .
