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.
Unna lies in the eastern part of the Metropolis Ruhr and is one of the major insiders' tips of the Ruhr Area, in particular because of the Zentrum für Internationale Lichtkunst (Centre for International Light Art).
As a stop, for example on a city break to Dortmund, Unna is an ideal excursion destination.
Located in the cellar vaults of Unna's Linden brewery is the Zentrum für Internationale Lichtkunst (Centre for International Light Art). Narrow corridors and huge halls display with a morbid charm a fascinating atmosphere of decline and history – an ideal location for modern light installations by international light artists such as James Turrel, Mischa Kuball and Mario Merz.
The town centre of Unna, with its numerous pretty cafés and restaurants, will entice you for a stroll through the old town.
