What’s waiting for you?
The Ferropolis open-air museum takes you on a journey into the past and the future. Ferropolis, the City of Iron, was all about energy and technology. This former grey everyday working world today is enlivened by the widest range of culture. Ferropolis is thought-provoking, while also offering relaxation in natural surroundings.
The “City” touches the soul and evokes emotions. Five heavy gigantic excavators each with its own history, stand on a peninsula in the artificial Gremminer Lake that covers the wasteland of an opencast mine: a new landscape of contrasts. A future-orientated, intense present very consciously plays with its past.
FERROPOLIS is a stop on the European Route of Industrial Heritage (ERIH), and an anchor point on the regional ERIH Route in Saxony-Anhalt. For further info on the ERIH click here
Since November 2018 Ferropolis has been classified with the nationwide designation, ‘Travel for Everyone’, and displays the ‘Information on Barrier-Free Access’ award. An overview of the test results including considerations for people with disabilities may be found in this PDF-Dokument
