There are lots of great offers for the whole family at industrial monuments in the Ruhr Valley! For one thing, you can obviously discover the sites yourselves, learn more about the lives and work of miners and their families at exhibitions and surviving buildings, be amazed by the machinery or enjoy the view of the Ruhr Valley from the winding tower. However, these sites have also created fantastic experiences for kids or the whole family.
