Guided Tours Zollverein

Living history and moving present

Denkmalpfad Zollverein, in English “Monument Path”, brings industrial history back to life. On guided tours through the originally preserved aboveground facilities of the Zollverein Coal Mine and Coking Plant, visitors experience what it meant to be working at the once most efficient coal mine in the world and Europe’s largest coking plant.

The participants follow the “path of the coal” above ground: From the extraction of the coal to the coking process, at Zollverein the first part of the heavy-industrial production chain can still be completely reconstructed and experienced. Thereby visitors gain exciting insights into the work as well as the life of miners and coke workers. Furthermore, the tour guide explains descriptive details on architecture, industrial nature and the change of the Zollverein World Heritage into a modern cultural location. 36 different guided tour formats in eight languages guarantee unforgettable experiences for all age groups.

Those who prefer to comfortably and quickly explore the entire World Heritage Site simply book the E-Bus! On the one- respectively two-hour Zollverein bus tours, a guide from Denkmalpfad Zollverein imparts interesting information on the history and architecture of the facilities. During the trip, the participants get to know all important buildings at Shaft XII, Shaft 1/2/8 and the Zollverein Coking Plant.

Sturdy shoes and seasonal clothing are recommended when participating in a tour. Registration is imperative.
