  Former coal mine
by filipdebont

There were many coal mines in this region.

Here you see the remains of the mine of Arenberg. The big elevator towers still remain as silent witnesses of a successful past. The closing of the many mines has been terrible for the economics and social situation in this region.

Nowadays some of these mines can be visited, like the coal mine of Wallers Arenberg; you can see the mining site with its 3 frames, mine buildings, which are a living reconstitution of coal mining and its miners.

Address: Place Marcel Danna, Wallers Arenberg
Directions: Open on tuesday and thursday from 9H till 12H, the other days only open on reservation.
groups on reservation.
