Dear visitors, 

the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklinger Hütte is open to you again.

We have implemented extensive protection and hygiene measures for the time of the Corona pandemic, which you can view here.

To avoid long queues of visitors at the ticket office, we recommend our Online ticketing, which you can also use spontaneously on site.

Under "Virtual | the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site" we have put together a package of virtual excursions through and videos of the Völklinger Hütte for all those people who are currently unable to visit this unique monument and its exhibitions.

Dear friends of the Völklinger Hütte World Cultural Heritage Site,

The Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site is opened. For this purpose, we have developed comprehensive protection and hygiene measures in coordination with the responsible authorities to make your visit as pleasant and safe as possible.

With the opening of the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site you can finally discover and experience the „Africa - In the view of the Photographers” exhibition "face to face".  In parallel to this exhibition, we have also opened the installation „ Forced Labourers – Memorial at Völklinger Hütte “ as well as the permanent exhibition " The Röchlings and the Völklingen Ironworks “.

With " Mon Trésor - Europe’s Treasures in Saarland", we will be exhibiting important treasures from the Saarland on Saturday, September 12th. The exhibition shows exceptional objects of archaeology, technology, architecture and art from the Celts to the present day and thus reveals the European dimension of the region. It tells of the archaeological roots, of the cross-border industrial culture, of the European idea after the Second World War - and not least of the people then and now.

We cordially invite you to visit the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site - European Centre for Art and Industrial Culture, its exhibitions and events.

We are looking forward to your visit!

Dr. Ralf Beil
Director General 
and the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage team
