This place is just amazing! It shows the softer side of the heavy industrial times, when you walk up to it you feel like you are walking up to a castle. It has big windows that provides beautiful lighting inside and towers with a killer view, if you dare to climb all the way up.
When you pass the mineshaft where the fatal accident happened all those years ago and you feel the cool breeze coming out, take a moment of silence for those who left their lives in there.
If you want to visit I suggest you hurry up since they are planning to fix it up so you might miss out otherwise.
Overall this location is a gem and surly worth a visit!

Coalmine Hasard is definitely worth it! This is one of the classics. In the beginning we had a bit of trouble finding the entrance, but we succeeded.

some history:

It's a really old but amazing building (coal mine). It was build in 1850.
After an accident accured, they decided to close it down for the first time. 30 years later in 1977, they reopend the mine again.
In 1980 were the coal washing and shaft 2 demolisched but shaft 1 was appointed as a monument. This shaft still stands here till this day but completly abandoned and left to the nature to take it over. It's protected by the gouvernment and they plan to restore it later on. Hopefully they go through with that plan, cause the mineshaft is such a cool and amazing location.

my experience:

this location was awesome and fun to visit! Also if you decide to visit, be careful because right beside the mineshaft is a pretty busy street with a lot of passing cars. Good luck!🔥
