check out the HISTORY of the steel production plant. between 1873 and 1986
many generations of steel workers and engineers produced steel for the
whole world. on the peek in the german wiederaufbau more than 17'000
people worked here. in the 80s the plant shot down. today the giant area is
under UNESCO protection. it is the first industrial monument on the list of the
UNESCO World Cultural Heritage sites. it is the only surviving ironworks in
the world from the heyday of iron and steel production and a unique
testimony to an industrial epoch of the past.



today kilometers of rusty steel pipes, stairs, pumps etc. build an insane
industrial dinasaur, ideal for etoy to study the link between the past and
the future - technoloy, innovation and decay.
