August-Victoria I-II (Germany)

The two remaining headstocks of Zeche Victoria: pit I and II. These two pits became active around the turn of the twentieth century. Named after the Kaiserin Auguste Viktoria von Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg, this coal mine used to count seven pits in its heydays (around the 1960s). After the mine shut down, the buildings surrounding pit I and II were preserved – thus safeguarding their grand architecture – and today fulfill new functions.
