1. Zollverein is an industrial site in Essen, Germany consisting of a coal mine and coking plant. It is a Unesco world heritage site due to it’s amazing architecture which is in the Bauhaus Style. It is regarded as one of the ‘most beautiful coalmines’ in the world and was designed so that you can see all the moving parts but all the people are hidden - Bit strange but kinda cool!

    Quite a nice historical summary is here :
