The Red Dot Design Museum is located in the former boiler house of shaft 12 at the Zeche Zollverein. A good place for a design museum as the former industrial plant looks pretty ‘designed’ in its Bauhaus style. I just love the way how the red coloured steel trusses are also used as a decoration element.
The Zeche Zollverein (Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex) is a larger former industrial site and is inscribed into the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. I was especially impressed by the use of Bauhaus style for some buildings.
