Kokerei Hansa

The since 1928 operating big coking plant Hansa was an important part of the Dortmunder coal, iron and steel industry. She sourced stone coal from neighboring mines and produced coke and coke oven gas for the Dortmunder smelters for decades. In the 90ies, the coking plant was finally shut down and declared a historic monument. During the Emscherkunst, multiple artworks can be found immediately on the coking plant’s grounds and within walking distance along the river Emscher.
