The Henrichshütte Iron and Steel Works in Hattingen
Industrial history in a museum of iron and steel
The oldest blast furnace in the area can be found at the Henrichshütte in Hattingen. It is 55 metres high and was built 80 years ago. In its heyday this huge plant near the River Ruhr employed 10,000 people. You will be fascinated by the relics of the smelting era, gaze in awe at the huge gas engines, savour the panoramic view from the blast furnace, before paying a visit to our show foundry at the Bessemer steelworks, where molten metal is once again flowing today.
