Landschaftspark Duisburg Nord & Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex april 2019

My next adventure was in Germany. In a place called Duisburg and Essen I visited Landschafstpark Duisburg-Nord and Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen. Two totally different places. The tour guide was Wilco Dragt and the travel organization is Nordic Vision.

Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord

Landschafstpark Duisburg-Nord

Former industrial buildings have been remodelled to host corporate and cultural events, Europe’s largest artificial diving centre has been created in an old gasometer. Former ore storage bunkers have been transformed into an alpine climbing garden, a high ropes course has been set up in a casthouse and a disused blast furnace has been equipped with a viewing tower. At night several buildings and installations are beautiful lit! The colors make the industrial complex a dreamworld

Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen

The Zollverein industrial complex in Land Nordrhein-Westfalen consists of the complete infrastructure of a historical coal-mining site, with some 20th-century buildings of outstanding architectural merit. It constitutes remarkable material evidence of the evolution and decline of an essential industry over the past 150 years. Different to the Landschaftspark Duisburg Nord these buildings are cubical and sleek architecture.
