We only went there for the Tim Burton exhibition but the old factory and coal mine-era machinery is totally great! It suits Tim Burton style perfectly :)

This mine was traditionally the backbone of Ghenk where immigrants came to work in the mine. It is now a reminder of things past and is a very conveniently located attraction with art gallery and cafes.
