Playground for children at the SCHOENE STERNE

On the area of the LWL industrial museum Henrichshütte in Hattingen there is an attraction for the little ones: a unique children's playground with a blast furnace as a showpiece. Here the children can play iron and steel production - but the oven is certainly cold!

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

Once the LWL industrial museum Henrichshütte (or Henrichshuette) 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 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! 

Food & More

At SCHOENE STERNE no one has to be hungry! We have improved the good food offer! Whether it's for the Ruhr Area typical curry sausage, burgers, pizza or vegetarian food, there is something for everyone!
And those who want to escape the hustle and bustle can relax - as in recent years - in "Bertha's Cafe" beer garden at the foot of the
blast furnace
