Teutoburgia (Germany)

Small coal mine dating back to 1907. In 1909 both pits became fully operational. The short history of the coal mine, which shut down in 1925, was a tumultuous one, maimed by two mine explosions leading to the death of six miners. The first explosion took place in 1911 and the second one only one year later, in 1912. Today, only one headstock and the reconverted machine room (which is used for art exhibits) still stand.
