UNESCO-Weltkulturerbe Völklinger Hütte

The Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site is a globally significant industrial monument and a fascinating cultural site with top-class exhibitions, concerts and events. In 1994, the Völklinger Hütte was the first industrial facility from the heyday of high industrialization to be declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. An important step for UNESCO: industrial culture is recognized as an important human heritage. And an important step for Völklingen and the Saarland: For more than a century, the Völklinger Hütte has shaped the work and life of many thousands of people in the region. This culture is appropriately recognized by the world cultural heritage.
