Self-guided tour of the blast furnace - a piece of industrial heritage.

At the beginning of the 20th century, a large steelworks was built at Belval. In addition to six blast furnaces, it also included a steelworks and several rolling mills. Its activities came to a definitive halt in 1997. The Luxembourg government then decided to convert the site and entrusted the Fonds Belval with the task of setting up the Cité des Sciences there in order to initiate new economic development.

The Fonds Belval was also tasked with preserving and promoting the industrial heritage of the site, in particular the two impressive blast furnaces. Today, Belval is a unique site in Europe, where industrial heritage and contemporary architecture coexist in harmony.

People with reduced mobility: a tour circuit with a lift allows visitors to avoid the stairs and reach heights of 40 metres.

To ensure visitor safety, access to the blast furnace may be closed at any time, depending on weather conditions.
