Dear visitors,

we are renovating for you the visitor walkway from the blast furnace hall to the sinter plant. Therefore, the entrance to the Völklinger Hütte has changed. Please follow the signs and the ground arrows. We excuse the inconvenience and wish you a pleasant stay at the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site. 

Your World Cultural Heritage Team

The Völklinger Hütte is the world's only fully preserved ironworks from the heyday of industrialisation, and is also the first industrial monument of this era to be added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Visitors will find it a highly exciting and fascinating place where past, present and future meet in a variety of ways.
