This is by far the best industrial museum that I have ever visited, and my excellent morning began well when I was given a surprise free entry! The 'exhibit' is incredible and the self-guided tour is laid out perfectly with the ideal balance of information pitched at a good level. There is one employee, the person at the door, and... More

This World Heritage site came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. Usually one visits cultural and architectural sites but this one is one very extensive industrial site. If you take full advantage of all the mill has to offer, you will get your exercise. There is a lot of climbing but that is the fun of exploring this mill.... More

Our main reason to visit the Huette was to see the Egyptian display which runs through April 2015. The display was interesting and gave me a look into not only how various Egyptian structures were built but also how the after life was so important to the Egyptians. The display was inside the steel factory so it was an interesting... More

We went there from Saarbrücken by local train (10 min + 3 min walk) with a 4 y.o. child and spent around 2.5 hours at this outstanding monument of industrial history. It all looks as if just deserted yesterday. One can climb up (wearing helmets) to the top of the very tall ovens having a spectacular view over all these... More

The iron and steel works were shut down in 1986 and are now kind of "industrial cathedral" : GIGANTIC, IMPRESSIVE, HUGE .... Walkways with signposts take you on an unforgettable tour , multimedia presentation is very good. In winter you better put on a warm jacket as it can be cold and windy outside. The EGYPT exhibition was very interesting... More

We had a wonderful day visiting the Ironworks factory. The Egyptian exhibit was awesome and we hope to come back to see what other exhibits will be featured. The factory itself was awesome to walk through and to explore the history of the factory.

Enjoyed several hours wandering around this amazing industrial site. So much to see. The exhibition showing 25 years since the unification is an added bonus. The Egyptian exhibits are superb and there is just so much too see. Highly recommended!

Coming from near Ironbridge in Telford (UK), a World Heritage site for iron manufacture, it was great to visit Volklingen Ironworks. Not only is it a fascinating museum but the ability to get 'nose close' and climb onto the structure is second to none! There is masses to see (as well as traveling exhibitions that they host - I think... More

A group of us did a self-guided tour of the ironworks as part of our visit to a Pop-Culture Multi-media installation at the Ironworks. The massive ironworks were every bit as impressive as the art collection! In addition, we had lunch in the café and it was very good.

I actually grew up not too far away from here, but never bothered. Only when I moved to the other site of the world and visited my family I finally took notice and gave it a go. And man was I excited. Not only is it worth visiting for the historic significance for the region, but the art and cultural... More
