The exhibition “The Röchlings and the Völklingen Ironworks” relates the more than 100 years of history of the Röchling family and the Völklingen Ironworks; from the founding days under Carl Röchling to the “nomination” of the Völklingen Ironworks to become a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Until the end of August the Völklingen Ironworks present with “Jazz Ladies” extraordinary female artists and their exciting jazz formations - live at the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks.
