The mine site contains a variety of meeting places that strengthen social cohesion. The former
mine director’s park is such an example that encourages interaction between people by
transforming it into a public park.
Beringen Mine has even more meeting places in its multicultural society. This way, the old and
the new mine site will be connected to the ‘Kolenspoor’ landscape park. This green axis
extends from the coaling harbour to the mine sites. Along the route, you will find various
culture-related elements such as the Mine Cathedral, mosque, community centres,
Culture brings people together and can be enjoyed everywhere at Beringen Mine. The Casino,
the ‘cultural temple of Beringen’ is a place of experience, situated along the green Kioskplein.
Culture can also be found in the Mine Museum and the mine buildings, which have recently
been brightened up with a flowery ‘mixed border’.
The small slag heap as an observation point is the cultural ‘top of the hill’. This grey stone mass
was transformed into a green landmark. You have a view of the mining heritage, the natural
beauty of the large slag heap, and the green garden areas where you can relax together in the
summer under the cooling foliage of the trees.
