"Szyb Maciej" Restaurant

Coal mine shaft Maciej is a complex of buildings of the former coal mine "Concordia" which is situated in the district of Zabrze - Maciejów.

It is the only tourist attraction located on two routes: the Industrial Monuments Route and "Silesian Tastes" Culinary Trail. Interior design refers to the trends of post-industrial buildings. Here you can try an excellent meal and feel the unique atmosphere of this place.   

Interesting exhibitions, concerts, culinary workshops, meetings, conferences  - these are just some of the cultural events that take place at "Szyb Maciej".

The basis of the menu are high-quality products from reliable suppliers and water from their own shots. The water is extracted from a depth of 80 meters where it is naturally filtered through a layer of rocks of Triassic origin, which results in its high mineral content. Coffee, tea, soups, sauces and even desserts prepared on the water have a much better flavor. Each week, the lunch menu is changed and in the evenings, one can enjoy specialties from the menu a la carte. 

Restaurant "Szyb Maciej" is a member of the "Silesian Tastes" Culinary Trail.

Shaft "Maciej" is a complex of buildings of the former coal mine “Concordia” (later “Pstrowski”) situated in Maciejów, a district of Zabrze. Coal was already mined in this region in the first half of the nineteenth century. The history of the shaft dates back to the beginning of the twentieth century, when in the area of the mine "Concordia” the tenth shaft called the "Westschacht" was dug out. After 1945, it was renamed "Maciej". The complex had been operating until the parent mine was shut down. Today, we can visit a headframe, from which we can admire the panorama of the urrounding areas, buildings of the shaft top, a hoisting machine and a drinking water intake.
The present church of Saint Andrew the Apostle in Zabrze was built between 1863 and 1866. This building was erected in the neo-Romanesque, and in the subsequent years it was expanded and renovated several times. The church is on a rectangular plan. It has a tower with a belfry and it is decorated with pinnacles and stonework details. This is not the first shrine in this place.
Zabrze botanical garden is located in the city center. The initiator of its creation was Berckling Fritz, a qualified building inspector of garden facilities, a native of Halle. The garden was established in the interwar years, at the time when Zabrze belonged to Germany. The Garden has been greatly enlarged in the postwar years, and today it comprises botanical parks and a playground with many facilities for children, and economic areas with greenhouses and palm house.
The church of Saint Camillus in Zabrze is located on Traugutt Square, which is considered the most beautiful in the city. The building of the church was designed by Heinrich Gerlach, a Gliwice architect, but the square itself and a number of buildings on it, as well as the interior of the church are the work of Dominicus Boehm, a prominent German architect. In the interwar period, he successfully combined historicizing styles with popular Modernism. The hosts of the church are the fathers Camillians.
The House of Music and Dance in Zabrze is an auditorium. It was built in 1959. It was designed by renowned architects - Zygmunt Majerski and Julian Duchowicz. Currently, there are numerous regional and interregional events held in the hall. The facility has hosted many famous national and international artists. In terms of the number of seats, as well as acoustic and technical parameters, the House of Music and Dance ranks among the top of such places in the country.
The building of the King Jan III Sobieski Primary School No. 5 is one of the most beautiful educational facilities in Zabrze . It was built in the years 1904-1905 for the Catholic elementary schools that operated in the building until the Second World War. The school was erected on a rectangular plan and bricked up to a height of two floors. The building is Eclectic - with numerous elements of the Gothic art and even of ancient Egypt.
