I absolutely loved walking around here, an amazing place, the scale of the factory is mind blowing. Chances are if you’re near here you’re heading for the Ruhr museum, if so definitely take the time to visit this site it’s right opposite the museum you won’t be disappointed. Was very quiet when I visited in November but I’m certain it gets busier when the weather is not so cold

A great place to visit. We had a guide who told us about its history in a very interesting way. It's worth listening to and seeing. The very long escalators were amazing.

I love this place and can relate to it to be an UNESCO world heritage. It's absolutely impressive and stunning. As a German I didn't even know what was here to see. Dimensions are huge and the industrial style to me looks surreal. I will definitely come back to see more and make a guided tour. There is a lot of industrial history here.

Once a huge coal mine now a beautiful industrial monument in the middle of a park with museums, restaurants, playgrounds, walking and biking lanes. No entry costs except for the museums. You can easily spend the whole day.

I would recommend getting a guide. Also visit the Red Dot museum and you may skip the Ruhr museum.

Great place to be and have a look around. I didn’t have the chance to see all relevant parts but it was still great.

Wonderful place to visit. Unfortunately, they don't have English guides on weekdays, but only on weekends. But we were able to walk around freely through the entire campus. The old coal mine, factory, and machinery looked majestic. A very beautiful place indeed. If you are around Essen, I would recommend this place to visit. And a beautiful location for your photoshoot as well.

It is a very big area which is nicely planned in terms of design, style, service to show history.
You can simply touch and feel history and how the weather and the time was earlier. You can also have a guide who can explain you about the history and if you have luck to have someone with a good story telling skills then you can really enjoy the whole visit. There is also restaurant and cafe inside alongside with toilet free of charge.
The complex and buildings are distributed a wide area so you may face and see different views

You could spend a half day here. It's free to enter the exhibition hall for students

The museum is just a small part of the experience, make sure to plan up to three hours of time in order to experience the entire campus fully. Many restaurants on site, beer and coffee are easily available. Plenty of places for children to enjoy, as well as adults. Bring a soccer ball if you can!

Very nice museum, the workers are polite and they have app which has language options to explain everything to you. 3 different time zone museums and extra football museum. From my taste, you should directly go downstairs 12m start with the history (past) museum, i find that s more interesting. In present section lot of photos and not useful information just items. It has wifi and toilet everywhere. For child under 5 age, student whose under 25 its FREE. So enjoy

MAGNIFICENT!! Absolutely loved being there and experiencing the coal mine industry. You can be there for hours and keep discovering cool stuff. There are museums and a café and other sections which are converted into research centers and so on. It is very peaceful and very big. It is no wonder a UNESCO heritage centre, it absolutely deserves it. Highly recommend going and checking it out. Don't forget to take a map at the information center or a pic of it at the entrance.

It is a wonderful place that has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Although we have a vaccination passport, we could not enter the museum because we did not have a test, but the outdoor and garden tells everything. This is what it means to protect your values. I advise. If you are going during the pandemic period, you cannot see it without a daily test and vaccination passport and mask.

Well maintained, nice tour. Nice place to spend a sunny afternoon. Most of it you can visit for free. Tour is a bit rushed now, because they have to cram 2 hours into 1, but still worth it.

Great place to wander around on a free food weather holiday. A lot is still under construction but it looks great how steel was manufactured.

Beautiful place to spend some time. If you want to visit the colliery and the museum, you should allow enough time. You need at least two to three hours.

Since the outdoor areas are open 24 hours a day, a visit in the evening is also worthwhile to simply stroll around the complex.

Very nice to visit. Best with guide. Learn about history. And also there was permanent and temp exhibition.

A very Iconic place in Essen one should not miss this place if visiting Essen.

The place is very vast lots of things to see around and there is no entry fee.

There are few museums located within the premises which are accessible after buying the ticket though the place itself gives some idea about the history.

There is a very huge escalator leading to Ruhr museum which again is unique within itself.

The nearest public transportation is via Tram station zollverein which is close to the entrance to this building.
