Dear friends of the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklingen Ironworks,

for millennia, the head is the 'most magic' part of the human body. The exhibition "The Skull – Icon. Myth. Cult." at the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklingen Ironworks display 250 human skulls and heads from all cultures in the world dating from the early Stone Age to the motif in today’s popor graffiticulture.

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.  

The approximately 1,400 m2 area of the “UNESCO VisitorCenter” offers a programmatic entry into the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks. And it is also the starting point of the walkway through the World Cultural Heritage Site, which is more than 7,000 m in length.

A ciruit  where you'll encounter at the stationary installations of international UrbanArt artists remaining at the Völklinger Hütte World Cultural Heritage site.  he circuit  includes works by Jef Aérosol, Vhils, Ludo or Tarek Benaoum.

I cordially invite you, your family and your friends, to visit the Völklinger Hütte World Cultural Heritage Site, its exhibitions and events.


Prof. Dr. Meinrad Maria Grewenig
general director | CEO
