Blast Furnace Belval

The Belval blast furnaces are a key cultural and tourist attraction. As part of the "City of Science" they have been renovated in an innovative way. Blast furnace A is accessible to the public up to a height of 40 m (180 steps) where you have a breathtaking view of the new quarters of Belval and its surroundings. An exhibition in the Massenoire building presents the "City of Science", a major urban project of the Luxembourg State, and recalls the history of the steel industry and the development of the southern region.

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.
