For 150 years the sparks were flying at the blast furnaces at the Henrichshütte ironworks when the kilns were opened to spew out the molten iron. Today we have brought this authentic historic ironworks back to life. Over 10,000 people once worked here on the gigantic site, producing coke, and casting, rolling and forging iron and steel. The museum has a number of different trails where visitors can learn more about the different work processes. They can also take the glass elevator to the top of the oldest existing blast furnace in the region, watch our steel casting demonstrations, go on a torchlight tour of the works at night, or simply sit back and enjoy a piano recital in the blowing house.
