About: European Road Trip - Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex


Nice to see you guys enjoyed it. You can actually see a lot more than you guys saw if you go on a guided tour. You can actually go into the buildings under the headgear and see the whole unloading and sorting facilities that come before the coal wash (which is where the Ruhr muesum is located)
Why is a closed coal mine listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site? Watch this video to find out why.  Find out more at: http://mikestravelguide.com/
