This magnificent industrial monument is one of Germany's 41 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From the gigantic machinery of the blower shed up to the heights of the charging platform, Germany's industrial heritage is brought to life here.
Founded in 1873, the Völklingen Ironworks once employed thousands of workers. Today it's a vibrant cultural site that stages frequent exhibitions and events. A multimedia show takes visitors through the plant's history, while the commanding heights of the ironworks offer spectacular views of the city of Völklingen and the modern Saarstahl steelworks. In the summer, the site reverberates with a very different kind of energy as the award-winning Electro Festival takes up residence here.
