Dortmund Phoenix-West 2005 (Germany)
Untill it closed down in 1998 Phoenix West was the most important place for the production of steel in Dortmund. After the production was shut down, parts of the factory were dismantled and transfered to China, but as you can see on the photos there's still enough left.

At first we both wanted to visit Phoenix West and East, but unfortunately, by the time we got there everything in Phoenix East was already demolished. The whole Eastern industrial area was a bare spot, a housing estate (including a small lake) will arise at this location. But it already took us a day to see everything we wanted on the 110 heactare large West area.

Still it's kind of tragic: this used to be high-quality industry, but caught up by time, this is all there's left of it...

Do you have a addition, question, or something else to report?
