10:00 a.m. Coal, Coke, and Camaraderie
Visit one of the most extraordinary icons of industrial culture, the Zeche Zollern colliery in Dortmund-Bövinghausen. Don’t be confused when you arrive! Despite the magnificent brick facades, opulent crenellated gables and corner towers around the green cour d’honneur – coal was mined here. Besides, the resplendent impression of a noble’s residence was fully intentional. These “model mines” were intended to present the power and economic success of the Gelsenkirchener Bergwerks AG company. You should also have a look at the mine housing development Kolonie Landwehr with the director's villa and the houses of foremen and officials in the neighbourhood. It’s worth it!
12:30 p.m. Shopping Spree

3:00 p.m. Dortmund Beer
By the High Middle Ages, the city was granted the jus braxandi, the right to brew beer. This was the foundation for an industrial branch that would become one of the most important for a long time to come. In their heyday, the local breweries produced more than 7.5 million hectolitres of this traditional Dortmund beverage. Follow the footsteps of Dortmund’s major brewing tradition in the Dortmund Brewery Museum. Perhaps a tour with beer tasting will be offered while you're there!
