Bochum is a city in the Ruhr area, North-Rhine-Westfalica. For a long time it was the city with the most coal mines in the city area. It´s one of the locations where the industrialisation, based on coal, began. According to the increasing demand of coal the mines digged deeper and deeper and moved northwards following the coal layers.
Today there is no active shaft left in Bochum, but the famous "German Mining Museum" shows still a lot of mining history, development and technique.
