C-mine (Genk)


Ceramicist Piet Stockmans’ studio, the work base of designers across various disciplines , and even the design & fashion academy: nowadays these are all to be found at the renovated C-mine buildings. Supplemented with trendy eating venues and the Euroscoop cinema, this venue has evolved into a tourist attraction that appeals to the creative type.

Visitors can enjoy the unique C-mine Expedition: an interactive route that leads you through the Winterslag mine buildings – the only one of its kind in Belgium! Wander along the subterranean corridors and come back up at the top of the headframe. At a staggering 60m height you are treated to a phenomenal vista across the surrounding countryside.
