The ambience at the former mine and coking plant Zollverein is unique: On 100 hectares of surface different rooms present themselves for company parties or family celebrations, for business or private events.

Located centrally at the Ehrenhof with the striking winding tower, the former switch house, hall 2, is to be found on a surface of 228 sqm, ideally suited for events including max. 150 people. The hall offers two rooms: The main hall can be completely blacked out and is suited for congresses, conferences, meetings and workshops. With the open stairwell, the adjoining Umformerhalle can be used ideally to welcome your guests or for following receptions. The historical machine park lends a special mark to your event.

Even the former electric workshop, hall 6, is situated centrally at the Ehrenhof of the Zeche Zollverein Schacht XII and offers nearly 200 sqm of event surface for 100 guests. It is suited very well for smaller conferences or for workshops and captivates by a gallery with spiral staircase to be used for presentations or as a lounge area.

As an unusual venue for up to 150 people the former circular thickener impresses at the coal washing. The biggest above ground building once was a gigantic machine accommodating the former circular thickener at 30-metre height. Developed to a modern talk space, this room is not only convincing by its excellent acoustics.
