The Explor Wendel Park

A former coal mining site created in 1862, the Wendel mine complex, which is now known as “Explor Wendel Park”, offers leisure-time and cultural activities for the whole family. Visitors can discover the Wendel Miners Museum, the Wendel Mine, cycle paths and walking trails, and they can also enjoy a large number of activities all year round (visits to mine towns, ….). The Explor Wendel Park also makes up one of the largest and most complete complexes of coal mining buildings in Europe.
