Ferropolis, Germany - 4th May 2013

By: MA_17

Hello Mommy,

today we visited Ferropolis. The "the city of iron" is an open museum of old huge industrial machines. It's an open air museum which contains machines from the mid-twentieth century. They can measure to 30 meters high, 120 meters long and weigh up to 1980 tons. Moreover, the area is used for several events like opera or music festivals like the "Melt! festival".
There are 5 enormous excavators for open-cast mining and each of them has its own name! ;)
As we are good guys we were allowed to climb on "Gemini". From there we had a fantastic view over the whole area!

Let's start with the lake around Ferropolis. It is called Gremminer Lake.

This is "Big Wheel". It's huge!

These are "Mad Max" on the left and "Medusa" on the right. In front of them you can see the arena.

And these are "Medusa" (once again) and "Mosquito" on the right.
