Gidstocht 'Tournée cité' (te voet)

Did you know that the mine provided houses for its employees? Labourers, clerks and engineers could live in on-site residences. Each type of home was built in a typical style. Schools, shops, sports pitches, boarding houses, a cultural centre, a hospital and a church were built to fulfil the miners' needs.

A whole neighbourhood was quickly formed around the mining seat. It was called the mining estate or garden district. You can round out the walk with a visit to the mosque or the mine cathedral.

When: Every day
Duration: 2 hours/ 3 hours. Wheelchair accessible.

A map of the mining estate is available for individual ramblers.
