The Zollverein World Heritage Site is now the best known industrial monument
in the Ruhr Area, and is the centre point of its creativity-based economy.
There are also creeping and crawling creatures to discover at a small zoo on the edge of the Ruhr Area, the TerraZoo in Rheinberg. It is a particularly popular excursion destination for families with children.
With 80 different species, the TerraZoo has a wide variety of animals, such as reptiles (lizards, snakes, tortoises and crocodiles), spiders, insects, toads and frogs.
The objective of the TerraZoos is to improve knowledge about and especially affection for unpopular animals. This is achieved by allowing visitors to see into the terraria from three sides, and to observe the animals' caretakers doing their work.
