You Won’t Believe These Places Were Once Industrial Sites!


5. The Landschaftspark in Duisburg-Meiderich, Germany is a park that was built to perserve the industrial roots of Germany. It was once a coal and steel plant, and you can still see some of the prominent structures like the Blast Furnace standing mighty tall.

When the plant shut down in 1985, it had done a lot of damage to area and the environment. As a result, in 1991, by making the Landschaftspark, the land was put to good use. 

This is how you put abandoned industrial sites to good use.

6. An old rail line, that was built after more than US$150,000,000 were spent on it, found itself becoming useless as less and less trains were required to transport goods. The first phase of the three opened in 2014 and while work is being done of the second phase, the third phase remains intact.
