"Zeche Fürst Leopold in Dorsten - named after Nikolaus Leopold Fürst zu Salm-Salm, merchant and hereditary member of the Prussian manor house, who held the mountain shelf at the time the colliery was founded, i.e. had the right to dispose of the mineral resources. From 1913 to 2001 coal was mined at the Zeche Fürst Leopold. The long operating time and the associated constantly new requirements for the buildings and technical facilities are still reflected in the picture of the mine.
Today the "CreativQuartier Fürst Leopold" is located on the site of the former colliery, which not only houses a lot of art and culture but also various gastronomic facilities. The area with its buildings is used in such a way that the creative charm of the mining facilities is often integrated as a backdrop and part of today's use without major structural changes. The CreativQuartier has become a trendy district that is well-known beyond the borders and thus an ever greater attraction for the entire region."
