The Chemical Park in Marl (Evonik) is an anchor point of the Route of Industrial Heritage: It is the only site that is still active but is nevertheless rooted in the history of the Ruhr region. With a surface area of nearly six square kilometres and 10,000 employees, it is one of the biggest chemical sites in Germany. Approx. 100 production sites produce products for industries ranging from automotive to medical technology to sport items. 900 buildings, 1,200 kilometres, 100 kilometres of rails and more than 4 million products which are sent all over the world - this site is really huge!
