    Ok, first sorry for the high isos pictures with all the noise on it... Pictures were took almost 5 years ago and you know, everybody makes mistakes... :(

    I'm not a huge fan of industrial places, but this one was a blast ! It took to us many hours to explore all the buildings around.

    Impossible for me to find another serie of pictures form this place. I don't really know whats the urbex name... :rolleyes:

    "In Göttelborn nothing is as it seems at first sight. The mining gear and colliers’ housing settlement have changed their roles. The strictly functional, clearly visible pit headgear is an expression of the latest state of technology; yet it has already taken on a museum function. On the other hand the housing settlement that looks like an open air museum is still a part of everyday life.

    The rise of the Göttelborn pit coincided with the zenith of industrialisation. In 1887 the Imperial Prussian Mining Authority began to mine coal here. As early as 1751 the Saarbrücken Prince Wilhelm Heinrich had nationalised the Göttelborn "Kohlegräberei". Göttelborn was always right up to date in technical matters and in 1972 it was one of the top pits in Germany. In 1990 400 million Deutschmarks were invested in shaft number four (it was around 1200 metres deep). Above the shaft stood a 90 metre high white pit headgear that quickly rose to the status of a local trademark. By 1995 Göttelborn was on its knees – a vain signal of hope in the midst of a general decline. The last ton of coal was mined in the year 2000."
