Dear friends of the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks,

In 2014 the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks is 20 years old. When the Völklingen Ironworks was classified as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1994 it created quite a sensation. Up to the present we have redeveloped 75 percent of the entire site and turned it into an exciting cultural location for the 21st century. In 2014 we are celebrating our history with "Generation Pop", emotional images of "25 years of German Reunification, the beginning of Western culture with "Egypt – Gods. Humans. Pharaohs."

Since the 18th of May our UNESCO visitor's centre is open to you. With the development of the sintering plant and new ways we have extended for you our walkways on 7,000 m in length.

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

I heartily invite you to visit the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklinger Hütte and the exhibitions.


Prof. Dr. Meinrad Maria Grewenig 
General director
