The buildings are monumental in size, especially the converted main structure. Other structures are in varying stages of being brought back to life. As a historical industrial site it is interesting to compare with the UK, where squalid conditions were endured by the workforce at...More

Great place to visit. Amazing complex of historical buildings and installations. You may touch the history of the industrial revolution in real. Independent industrial city inside the city. Hard to believe it was built for the workers 150 years ago. Owner’s palace is surprisingly great.

This place is very atmospheric. The old brick buildings, the fall colors, and a bit of quiet. This place is perfect for a romantic date.

This is truly a hidden architectural gem. The red brick facades of the buildings from another era will travel you in time and the splendor of the renovation will take your breath away. The scale of it is like nothing your have ever seen before....More

Used to be a housing area for factory workers, poor, just about enough to survive. Part of it was rejuvenated, people still live there and it's an amazing journey into a different century. Paradise for photographers.
