Visitors can climb to the top of one of the blast furnaces, attend music concerts, theatre and dance shows in the old production workshops, climb the outdoor bunkers or even go underwater diving in a flooded gasometer. There is also a permanent exhibition on the subject of iron production. One last bonus: there is even a modern youth hostel on site.
