Dear friends of the Völklinger Hütte World Cultural Heritage Site,

All booked tours during this period will be cancelled. Should it prove possible to reopen the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site after this date, the planned exhibition "Africa – in the view of the photographers"will open after the end of the corona pandemic protection measures.

In the exhibition “Mon Trésor: Europe’s Treasures in Saarland”, the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site exhibits from Saturday 12th september, treasures that originated in Saarland but have international significance. Featuring exceptional archaeological, architectonial and technological objects as well as works of art from the Celts to today, the exhibition reveals the region’s European dimension. It examines Saarland’s archaeological roots as well as its role in international industrial culture and the postwar idea of Europe.
