UNESCO-Welterbe Zollverein

Premier league from the outset: The formerly biggest mine of the world is always known for its sensational architecture and today, it convinces with its versatile cultural offer and leisure activities. Here, every conference gets quite a special character: All the same whether it is a small or a big conference, with a total of seven halls the endowment Zollverein offers a wide range for events of 100 to max. 1,200 people.

The former switch house, hall 2, and the former central workshop, hall 6, are located centrally at the Ehrenhof with the well-known winding tower and are suited very well for smaller meetings and conferences of max. 300 people. The straight architecture in the style of the Neue Sachlichkeit encounters historical installations which provide for a special atmosphere.

The multifunctional hall 12, the former conveyor belt hall of the mine for manual picking, is suitable for events of every kind on 1,250 sqm. Thanks to different halls and functional next rooms it offers room to congresses of max. 1,000 participants. The big hall with 850 sqm of surface already disposes of the devices for your technical equipment. Besides, the former central workshop, hall 5, simply is ideal for larger congresses: The high ceilings make the hall particularly suitable for elaborate technical event formats - no matter whether they are flooded with light or blacked out.

The world heritage Zollverein is perfectly connected to the railway and the road networks of the Ruhr area.

The endowment Zollverein supports you as a reliable, creative and competent partner at the realization of your unique event.
