Welcome

to the European Route of Industrial Heritage, the tourism information network of industrial heritage in Europe. 

Currently we present more than 1,000 sites in 44 European countries. Among these sites there are 77 Anchor Points which build the virtual ERIH main route. On seventeen Regional Routes you can discover the industrial history of these landscapes in detail. All sites relate to thirteen European Theme Routes which show the diversity of European industrial history and their common roots.

Do you know...

where the tallest exhibition area in the Europe can be found?

It’s the Gasometer in Oberhausen, Germany. The Gasometer (117.5 m. high, with a diameter of 67.6 m and a usable volume of 347.000 cubic metres) is also the largest gasometer in Europe. It was completed in 1929 as an interim store for waste gas from the nearby Good Hope Mill steelworks. Some time later it took up coking gas from the Osterfeld coking plant, and most of this was used to supply nearby industrial plants. The Gasometer was closed down in 1988. In 1999 Christo and Jeanne-Claude presented their spectacular art project "The Wall" in this highly unusual exhibition area.
