Lake Phoenix – making the ugly beautiful

By New German kitchen, August 14, 2016

20 years before one of the most ugly places in German Ruhr Area was the place of steel producing in Dortmund. Big smoke clouds turned the heaven and their dust everything else dirty. After shut down of this business and ignoring the ground for a few years some people made something very beautiful out of it: Lake Phoenix.


Lake Phoenix is an artificial lake and meanwhile the place to be on sunny day in Dortmund.
