Dear friends of the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklingen Ironworks,

Due to the huge interest , we extended our exhibition "Inca - Gold. Power. God." until Sunday, 8th April 2018! The exhibition on the culture of the Inca and the cultures that preceded it focuses on the greatest fantasy of our culture. Driven by materialist greed for gold, the Conquistadors conquered America's most powerful empire with its 3,000 year-old culture. The 220 exhibits of the exhibition deal with the conflict between this very different evaluation of gold.

The "4th UrbanArt® 2017 Biennale" ended with a record 151,813 visitors. The artworks of the "UrbanArt Parcours" remain, however, in the World Cultural Heritage Site of the Völklinger Hütte: 53 fixed installations, which 38 UrbanArt artists have created locally for the Völklinger Hütte!

Exceptional exhibitions on the Inca culture and the cultures that preceded it, the "UrbanArt Parcours", the 7,000 metres of trails with milestones in the history of technology, the UNESCO Visitor Centre and the "wild" Paradise Landscape Garden await you!

I cordially invite you, dear friends of the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site, to come and experience the wonderful Völklinger Hütte, its exhibitions and events, and to bring your friends and family with you.

Kind regards 

Prof. Dr. Meinrad Maria Grewenig
CEO | General Director
