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.

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 " Mon Trésor - Europe’s Treasures in Saarland", we will be exhibiting important treasures from the Saarland on Sunday, november 8th. 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 this region of the world. 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. This inspired the idea of asking the people in Saarland and our Greater European Region for their personal treasure in a call. To find out more, please go to www.mon-tré

Since the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage reopened, the „Africa - In the view of the Photographers” exhibition has attracted an increasing number of visitors. It shows Africa and its people from a completely new perspective, from the inside. 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 “.

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
