Please note: Zollverein World Heritage is closed temporarily to slow coronavirus outbreak. We hope to open again on April 20th.
Multimedia-based presentations and innovative information terminals show the anchor points of the Route of Industrial Heritage with their former and current use. A combination of images, texts, and sounds impressively imparts the monuments of the industrial age as they were in the past, as they are today, and will be in the future.
A footbridge links the Portal of Industrial Heritage with the authentically preserved part of Zollverein Shaft XII: A path along huge machines and conveyor belts leads along the Denkmalpfad Zollverein (Zollverein Monument Path) up to the viewing platform on the rooftop of the Coal Washery, which afford a spectacular panoramic view across the region.
Admission to the Portal of Industrial Heritage is included in the admission fee for the permanent exhibition of the Ruhr Museum.
closed on 24., 25. & 31.12.
