Perfect place for abstract photography and digging into the heart of a steelfactory. Very authentic, rusty and lovely. Nothing artificial or decorated but true history. Love it !

Once outside you go back in time. Passing an old tram (nostalgia). You see huge equipment all over the place. Very impressive and realizing making steel is a totally different process than working in information technology. I was impressed. You walk thru the process step...More
