Diving and Photography

Discover the world

Route Industriekultur

The “Route Industriekultur” are old industrial sites in the Ruhr area in Germany that are converted into museums. Great for urban industrial photography. This time I visited the railroad museum in Bochem, Heinrichshutte in Hattingen (an old steel plant) and a quick stop at the Tetraeder in Bottrob. Check the Urban Industrial galley.
