About this spot
The Beringen mine site comprises 100,000 m² of existing building heritage. This makes it the largest industrial heritage site in Flanders and unique in Europe. Of all the other mining sites in Limburg, it is the only site where the industrial heart of the mine was preserved. The mining site is located in the small urban area of the third largest city in Limburg and at the foot of two terraces. Under the heading be-MINE, the site is now being repurposed as a tourist-recreational project. Urban functions such as living, working and shopping are interwoven in a balanced way. With the master plan for the redesignation of 32 hectares of mining grounds, the historic location will be given a dignified, valuable and contemporary interpretation.
