Henrichshütte - a former ironworks provides the perfect setting for SCHOENE STERNE.

Once the LWL industrial museum Henrichshütte was an ironworks, today it´s an impressive museum of iron and steel! For 150 years the sparks sprayed, when the blast furnaces of the Henrichshütte spat out liquid iron. At the event SCHOENE STERNE 2017 all sections are freely accessible for you. Have you ever stood in front of a steel tapping or blast furnace? We make the history of iron and steel at this unique original location alive for you!
