Blast furnaces in the City of Science

The blast furnaces of Belval that form part of the City of Science at the new university are a major tourist attraction and cultural highlight. You can climb up more than 180 steps to reach a height of 40m in blast furnace A, as part of a guided tour led by former steelworkers. From there you have an amazing view of a unique ensemble of urban buildings. A few times a year, it’s possible to visit the blast furnaces by night. An exhibition in the Massenoire building provides an introduction to the university quarter and describes the history of the iron and steel industry and the development of the southern part of Luxembourg. Just nearby is the Rockhal concert hall.
