The Camino de Santiago leads to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, where the bones of Saint James, one of the 12 apostles, are kept under the cathedral. If the long hike used to be a journey into the "I", today it is more and more like an ongoing sporting event.

Industrial heritage: Zollern colliery

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Mon, 09/19/2022 - 18:29

The disused coal mine Zeche Zollern in Dortmund is one of the most architecturally remarkable pits in the Ruhr area. The park-like facility with its impressive Art Nouveau buildings still shows today that it was built as a model colliery around 1900 and was intended to show both economic strength and progress.

We visited the facility with our friends from Herne, the photographers Renate and Jürgen Saibic, whom we met many years ago on Easter Island in Chile.
