Dear friends of the Völklinger Hütte World Cultural Heritage Site,
we have extended the exhibition "Pharaohs Gold - 3,000 Years of Ancient Egyptian Advanced Culture" for you until 26 April 2020. The exhibition shows outstanding ancient Egyptian gold treasures from more than 3,000 years. The 160 exhibits form the largest collection of unique and magical gold exhibits from Ancient Egypt. They can be seen in this form for the first time. We invite you to immerse yourself in this fascinating world of Ancient Egypt in the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks, which has already attracted more than 100,000 visitors.
The 5th UrbanArt Biennale® 2019 Unlimited ended on 3 November with 116,499 visitors. This 5th UrbanArt Biennale® was the fourth Biennial event with more than 100,000 visitors; a lasting proof of the unique symbiosis of industrial culture and UrbanArt, which sets national and international standards. We thank all our guests for this wonderful result: the visitors as well as the artists and project partners. The permanent installations of the Urban Art Parcours are, as in recent years, will be open to you.
The Völklinger Hütte World Cultural Heritage Site is the first industrial monument from the heyday of industrialisation to be included in UNESCO's World Heritage List. This was a sensation on 17 December 1994! On 17 December 2019 we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the inclusion of the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklinger Hütte in the list of World Heritage Sites.
We cordially invite you to visit the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklinger Hütte - European Centre for Art and Industrial Culture, its exhibitions and events.
Team of the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklinger Hütte
