Dear friends of the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklingen Ironworks,

The worldwide unique industry culture of the Völklingen Ironworks and a sensational Buddha exhibition await you in 2016.

From 1st May 2016 we will present one of the world's best photographers in a solo exhibition. “Steve McCurry. Buddhism – Photography 1985 to 2013” shows a very special facet of the famous american magnum photographer Steve McCurry – his interaction with the culture of Buddhism.

From 25th June 2016, by means of 232 outstanding masterpieces of Buddhist art spanning 2000 years, we are to make the world of Buddha really come alive. The exhibits originate from the treasure chambers of some of the best private collections in the world to make the entire spectrum of this pan-Asian theme extremely palpable. Most of the exhibits will be seen for the first time in public.

Discover, in 2016, the world culture of Buddha, at the Völklingen Ironworks, the most significant UrbanArt in the Paradies and this great milestone of the industry culture of the Western World.

I most warmly invite you, dear visitor, to visit the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks and its numerous, momentous events.


Prof. Dr. Meinrad Maria Grewenig
general director | CEO
