The Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site is the only fully preserved ironworks of industrial culture. Covering an area of more than 600.000 m2, the gigantic ironworks are a must-see attraction for anyone seeking the exceptional. On a tiny space it displays a collection of milestones in high technology of the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, the Völklinger Hütte forms part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites, like the Cheops pyramid in Egypt, the Great Wall of China, the Acropolis in Athen and Cologne Cathedral.

Unique Exhibitions like “Leonardo da Vinci –MenMachine”, “The Celts – Druids. Princes. Warriors.”, the Genius-project “Your brain: think. feel. act.”, “Generation Pop – hear me! feel me! love me!, or “Egypt. Gods. Humans. Pharaos.
