From underground to outer space

Warning, there's a lot of work to do now! In the Recklinghausen training mine, you can experience the feeling of working underground up close. Operate original machines and revive the mining tradition with real buddies. A visit to the Westphalian People's Observatory and the Planetarium takes you completely in the other direction, namely up high. Together with our astronomers, take a look into the infinite expanses and travel into the depths of space.
