Belval - City of Science & Blast-Furnace

Description

Our own little Eiffel Tower.

Luxembourg’s version of the Iron Lady, these towers symbolise the cultural richness of the Terres Rouges. Witnesses of an era that transformed the country and played a major role in its economic emergence and the lives of its inhabitants, the Belval Blast Furnaces have left their mark Luxembourg’s history and the landscape. This site is the pinnacle of the region’s identity and fascinating history. The closure of the country’s last remaining blast furnace in 1997 marked the end of an era. It was time to turn the page, this transition made room for new technology in the future.

The fact that Belval is such a growing and flourishing place today is largely thanks to its magnificent past. Discover this history with projections and a visit to the various sites. Guided tours are also available to help visitors better understand how this massive machine works. The visit starts with a brief introduction in the former industrial building known as the “Massenoire”, which is now the visitor and information centre. It will then be followed by a guided tour of the quarter before stepping inside blast furnace A, visit the cast house, walk along the cooling system and end your visit with a breath-taking view, in 40 meters height, of the city.
