Borken is a small town with about 13,000 inhabitants in the Schwalm-Eder district in northern Hesse, Germany.
The town is a former centre for brown coal mining and coal-fired electrical generation in Hesse. The coalmine, unlike those in other regions, also had underground workings. After a major disaster – namely a coal dust explosion – the mine was shut down on 1 June 1988.
