Ferropolis 1

You are taking a journey into the past and the future. Five disused bucket wheel excavators and continuous bucket dredgers as well as stackers, each up to 130 meters long and 30 meters high, are located on a peninsula in the lake Gremmin: in a whole 7000 tonnes of industrial history.

Once, here was the central office of the brown coal open mine Golpa-Nord, which was flooded in the meantime. Until 1991 brown coal had been extracted around the peninsula. Then the open mines’ giant equipment – monuments of the machine age- should have been scrapped.
But former mine workers and visionaries associated with the BAUHAUS Dessau saved the steel colossuses and grouped them into an impressive ensemble.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
