Huge complex with interesting view. Not much option for non German language as when we came English only available during weekend. Was good though, although inside factory guide took quite so long, nearly 2 hours.

Beautiful characteristic Industrial memorial, walk around terrains for best experience. Red Dot Design Museum with design prize winning objects in huge 'rusty' factory hall restyled by Norman Foster is also a unique experience. Go there
