  • Explore exciting touch and experimentation exhibits in an impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site, the former Zeche Zollverein boiler house

Located in the former boiler house of the Zeche Zollverein, the Red Dot Design Museum serves up over 2,000 innovative objects from 45 different nations. Come explore the world's biggest contemporary design exhibition - from USB flash drives to Apple icons, to ceiling-mounted gyrocopters and more!

The planet's biggest contemporary design exhibition is potentially one of the most impressive too, from its location in the industrial UNESCO World Heritage Site Zeche Zollverein boiler house to the regularly rotating exhibitions.

See a range of design icons of the 21st century and find out how they've shaped our lifestyle and product culture.

See the Audi Space Frame, the world's first all-aluminum car body, and be wowed by the museum's centerpiece, a 6,000-sheet sculpture that took 300 hours to create!

All 2,000 objects here have been awarded the Red Dot Seal of Quality in one of the biggest international design competitions.
