Zeche Tour

Author sophos9 - Last updated: 17.06.2010

I would like to show you some cool and (some quite) unknown mines, or “zeches” as they are called in Germany.
I did several tours already. Some were sealed, other were uninteresting but most of them were beauties
Soon i go back for visiting more potentional ones

Zeche am wald, after searching for hours and almost gave up, we found this zeche, in the middle of the forest.
Searching an entrance was also a pain in the ass but we succeeded.




Zeche mit kaue, a half touristic and very busy spot. It was hard to get in here, and impossible without getting seen. We succeeded on our 2nd visit.




Zeche AEG, they are demolishing this giant mine, to bad there is not very much to see, but the huge AEG machine was worth the visit.



Zeche KP, a nice zeche, with big machinery and turbines… completely forgotten? When we are in a building we hear a angry woman shouting “GET OUT!” the screaming fades away and more voices are coming back..it looks like they are throwing things to the buildings..we don’t know who or what.
We continue photographing and decide to leave (need to do a revisit)



Zeche BR There are some cars near the terrain of this zeche, though we continue, but when we walk to the buildings we see a man walking with his dog. a hit and run through the bushes and a painfull fence. We don’t want to give up, so we went to the Mc.D. and returned with succes




Zeche DB Visited this one last year, when it was quite unknown, it’s pretty known by now, although everyone misses the best part imo. It’s one of the best mines i’ve seen so far. Fully equipped and nice decayed. The bad thing about this one, that there are a lot of active copper thieves ( saw them also, was quite thrilling too )
