Waterschei colliery

Back

Genk has three collieries: Winterslag, Zwartberg and Waterschei. The Waterschei mine was the very first coal mine in Limburg. André Dumont first found coal in As, but it was in Waterschei that he opened the first mine.

Thor Park

Today the colliery’s main building is a real eye-catcher. Now called Thor Central, it is a hotspot of technology, energy and innovation. It's the ideal place for a meeting or conference.
