Essen - Zeche Zollverein Coal Mine

The Zollverein Coal Mine was an active coal mine until 1986. Today it's a masterpiece of industrial architecture and is accounted as “the most beautiful coal mine in the world”. Since 2001 it has been inscribed into the UNESCO list of World Heritage Site. The Zollverein Coal Mine is one of the anchor points of the European Route of Industrial Heritage and houses several cultural institutions and the Folkwang University of the Arts. About 1.5 million guests from all over the world visit the mine every year to experience the exceptional industrial architecture, participate in guided tours, visit exhibitions, celebrate festivals or relax in the Zollverein Park. The guided tour "About Coal and Miners" will give you an insight into the world Heritage Site Zeche Zollverein.

Brewery Tour "Zum Schlüssel"

Almost everyone in Germany knows and likes beer, but how is it actually brewed? The house brewery "Zum Schlüssel" looks back on a long and rich history. The first mention of the later house brewery "Zum Schlüssel" was in 1632 under the melodious name "Zu den drei Königen" (To the Three Kings), then owned by Johann von Monheim. Here you can experience brewing at first hand and also enjoy a taste of it. After the tour we reserved a table in the brewery to get to know each other. The tour is free of charge (food and drinks are not included).
