W 1983 roku dyrekcja KWK „Zabrze – Bielszowice” podjęła decyzję budowy nowej sztolni szkoleniowo-propagandowej, którą połączono ze starymi wyrobiskami dawnej kopalni „Królowa Luiza”. Powstała wzorcowa sztolnia szkoleniowa, doskonale imitująca prawdziwą kopalnię i posiadająca m.in. zmechanizowane ściany wydobywcze. Otwarcie całego zespołu wyrobisk, nazwanego Ośrodkiem Szkolenia Zawodowego i Propagandy Górnictwa przy KWK „Zabrze – Bielszowice”, nastąpiło w grudniu 1985 r. Współcześnie na bazie dawnego ośrodka szkoleniowego i wyrobisk „Królowej Luizy” powstał Park 12C, dedykowany przede wszystkim dla rodzinom z dziećmi i zorganizowanym grupom szkolnym.
The water tower at Zamojskiego Street in Zabrze is one
of the largest and most original buildings of this kind not
only in Silesia, but also in the whole country. The tower
was built in 1909. It is located on an elevated hill, which
dominates over the surrounding area. The tower
supplied water until after the war. The tower is
supported by pillars placed on an octagonal plan and a
central pillar. The part with the tank was covered with a
mansard roof. The lower floors were occupied by
workers’ flats and utility rooms.
The Upper Silesian Breweries in Zabrze boast of more than a
150- year-old tradition and continue to brew beer nowadays.
The first brewery in today's Zabrze was launched by Loebel
Haendler in 1860. It was located at the road called The Way
of the Heir to the Throne - later, the main street of the city -
Wolności Street, which means Liberty Street. Beer from the
HAENDLER brewery enjoyed great reputation - some brands
were also popular outside Silesia. Today, the brewery is
modern, however, a few pre-war buildings and traditional
equipment for brewing beer have been preserved.
