HammNorth Rhine-Westphalia in Germany.
Hamm (Westfalen) stationThis station is a surprisingly important hub given the size of Hamm and is served by several ICEs. It used to be an important freight hub as well, but that role has greatly diminished.
MaximilianparkThe former coalmine Maximilian was transformed into a leisure park with the coalmine washery having been turned into a walk-in-sculpture in the shape of a Glass Elephant. By entering a lift inside the elephants trunk, visitors can reach the top floor of the transformed building, allowing a panoramic view of the surrounding area. As of 2010, the elephant also included a collection of mechanically moving constructs called garden of kinetic objects, mimicking e.g. animal movements. The park also contains various remnants of the sites industrial heritage, playgrounds, a butterfly house, a park railway (operated by a railway club during limited operation times) and a bistro.
