The shut-down old Völklingen Steel Mill was declared a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in 1994. Former steel workers will lead you through this unique example of the industrial history of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Afterwards you will enjoy a break at the Saar Bend, the horseshoe bend in the Saar located in the midst of the greenest part of the Saarland, before continuing to Mettlach where you will enjoy a savory, traditional lunch.

Finally you will visit Villeroy & Boch, the prestigious porcelain manufacturer, and take a peak at what goes on behind the scenes. The old abbey in Mettlach is a magnificent baroque construction, which has witnessed 250 years of company history.

In the "Keravision" exhibition, the international star Sir Peter Ustinov leads you on an entertaining film journey through the ages, while home environments and perfectly created interiors with modern lifestyle trends await you in the Tableware Discovery Center. The Ceramics Museum will reveal the the fascinating history of "white gold". You will find tableware aplenty at attractive prices on your stroll through Mettlach's pedestrian zone.
