History

This coal mine was established in 1910 and was funded by the Prussian empire. This facility contained two elevator towers. In 1912 the construction began on a cokes plant right next to the coal mine. 

In 1943 the mine shut down due to the second world war, after 6 years the mine reopened again. With this reopening there was also a major renovation, with this renovation there was a larger modern elevator added to the facility. In 1998 the facility was bought by a big coal mining corporation which owned 5 other coal mines. In 2008 the  98 year old coal mining facility was closed down by the government. The historic part is currently being restored and the part that was renovated after the war will probably be torn down. 

 

Explore

The entrance was *access details removed*. when we got in we first went trough a whole system with conveyer belts, after that we ended up in the huge coal washery. after we explored this part we went up into the elevator tower. The tower was 10 floors high so we were quite tired then we were on the tower but it was really worth it, in the tower there was an enormous electrical lift motor which was really nice to take pictures from. It was a really cool place to explore, I really enjoyed it!

Great set. The photos of the connecting corridors between the buildings look cool.

      When in 1910 huge amount of Radon was found in the spring water the small town became a spa center for rheumatology. In 1912 the sanatorium was build and operated until the German reunification. As after the reunification public fundings supported building new estates a new sanatorium was build in striking distance.
      Nowadays the old sanatorium is abandoned for more than 20 years.
