In the centre of the Ruhr-area you can find the remains of the colamine 'Zeche Hugo'.
Started in 1873, closed in April 2000.
More as 125 years hundreds of miners worked here in shifts to bring the coal above the ground.
In the meantime the most of the buildings are demolished.
What is left are one of the towers and the buildings which contained the offices and the clothingrooms.
At the ceiling hundreds baskets still hanhing on their chains
Once it hung here full with clothing of the miners, now its empty and abandoned for years.
