Machine buildings Radbod, Radbod mine, shaft 1/2

Year of construction

Hamm-Bockum-Hövel, An den Fördertürmen (at the winding towers)

The hoisting machine buildings of Radbod mine were built in the years 1905/06 in the historicism style. Round-arched friezes, pilaster strips and the alteration between brick and stucco panels structure the facades.
Inside, two steam-driven hoisting machines are preserved from 1907 and 1908.

Tomson-Trestle with shaft hall Gneisenau mine, shaft 2

Year of construction

Dortmund-Derne, Gneisenauallee

The so-called Tomson-trestle refers to the Ruhr region’s oldest preserved headframe.
The shaft hall belonging to it with refurbished roof and walls was built as a representative brick building in historicism style.

Machine hall Pattberg mine, shaft 1

Year of construction

Moers-Repelen, Pattbergstraße

The machine hall is the only structural relic of the former Pattberg mine, whose areas were transformed into an industrial park.
But the unostentatious, cubic brick building from 1932 contains very impressive, monumentally protected equipment:
an electrical hoisting machine and two converters from 1912.

Consolidation mine, shaft 9, pit bank

Year of construction

Gelsenkirchen-Bismarck, Klarastraße

The 53-meter high headframe over shaft 9, which is regarded as the city district’s symbol and as a landmark far beyond this, is located right in the middle of the Consol-Park in Gelsenkirchen-Bismarck that is geared towards leisure time and relaxation.
It was built in 1922 as a steel lattice formwork construction, and was replaced by solid wall construction soon afterwards.
A large, elevated shaft hall, the so-called pit bank, is integrated in the headframe.
The ensemble is surrounded by two historical machine buildings from the 1920s, which are used by the Foundation for the Preservation of Industrial Monuments and Historical Culture and the City of Gelsenkirchen for cultural purposes.
The Consol-theater is in the immediate vicinity, too.

Sterkrade mine, shaft 1

Year of construction

Oberhausen-Sterkrade, Von-Trotha-Straße

The filigree headframe over shaft I of Sterkrade mine in Oberhausen sublimely juts up towards the sky.
It was built in 1903 and is one of the very few preserved three-legged shaft towers in the Ruhr region.
The structure designed in half-timbered construction is connected with a shaft hall that was built as a massive, three-story brick building, reminiscent of the Malakow towers of the 19th century with its historical facade.
Inside of the shaft hall, you reach a pit bank via a steel staircase that still belongs to the original equipment.
