If you’re looking for something different to see this is the place. Take snacks and water because you can spend up to 4 hrs depending on how much you want to see.

The ironworks at Voelklinger are quite impressive. With huge machines and furnaces reflecting technologies of over 100 years. This is the real thing. Huge furnaces and motors. A true engineering experience. You walk around, up and down. This month, there is also a very impressive...More

I think there may be a double entry for this attraction ... Allow plenty of time - it is very extensive (the circular walking tour runs for 6 kms!) and so interesting - and a photographer's delight! In 1986, these gigantic ironworks - covering an...More

Already on approaching the gigantic ironworks you hold your breath a bit. The smelting ovens are like an oversized sculpture by Richard Serra, all rusted iron in twisted and strange forms. Listed by Unesco as world heritage in the industrial section, it is a towering...More
