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

The “UrbanArt Biennale®” at the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks has established itself as the most significant display of artworks of the 21st century in Europe. From 29th March 2015 we are showing the “UrbanArt Biennale® 2015” featuring the most significant works from the world’s metropolises.

Due to the phenomenal reaction of the visiting public to “Egypt – Gods. Humans. Pharaohs.” the exhibition has been extended to 12rd April 2015. Do please take the opportunity to experience the outstanding exhibits of Ancient Egypt from the Museum Egizio Turin.

From 20th January 2015, our lectures series on “Egypt – Gods. Humans. Pharaohs.” offers you the possibility to have a deeper acquaintance with the subject academically. With the exhibitions “The Röchlings and the Völklingen Ironworks” and “25 Years of German Reunification” we are showing two moving chapters of contemporary history.

I heartily invite you, your family and friends to visit the events and exhibitions of the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks.


Prof. Dr. Meinrad Maria Grewenig
General director
