Rising from the ashes: Industrial culture at PHOENIX West
As black as coal – that’s the image the Ruhrpott region has for many people. The constant smoke from the chimney stacks. The hard slog from morning to night in dirty overalls and the only reward: a cool beer at the end of the day. Much of this belongs to the past. On the former PHOENIX-West industrial site in Dortmund's Hörde district, for example, steel production has long since been laid to rest. But you can still have a beer and reminisce about the old days in the plant, or at least imagine what it must have been like.
