Once outside you go back in time. Passing an old tram (nostalgia). You see huge equipment all over the place. Very impressive and realizing making steel is a totally different process than working in information technology. I was impressed. You walk thru the process step by step. Even on a rainy day this is impressive.

Great park with great views from the top of the steel ovens. There were demonstrations of molding steel into shapes. Also tours into a mine, but when I wanted to join the group was too large already (it was museum weekend, so probably more crowded than usual). There are some minerals on display. And there was an exhibition about WWI, mainly photos.

The Henrichshütte is a lively place even though it's been closed for years - there are different outdoor paths for industrial history, the recovery of nature and for children. Different guided tours for adults and for children are on offer as well. The indoor part is a little less exciting but still worth it.

This museum gives good iformation about steel and coal industrie informer times. The Complete plant was disassembled from Chinese workers and transfered to Chine. There it is still working. In germany the plant was not anymore feasible. 18.000 workers lost there job. But they stay still in Hattingen in their company own houses and have mostly changed their job. The training program was financed by the goverment and the steel copany.

A fantastic place for all those "how does it work" freaks. A perfect explanation for young and old on how blast furnace works - from the train station where iron ore gets delivered to the ready product.

Additionally fantastic kids playground.
