Voelklingen Ironworks

So, yesterday it was a 3rd century roman UNESCO monument, today it’s 19th century industrialisation UNESCO monument. We spent 4 hours inside the HUGE iron factory at Voelklingen. The self guided round tour was 6kms long!

We rode 35km in the drizzle to get there by lunchtime, through an increasingly industrialized river valley. On another day it might have been dreary, but on the way to Voelklingen Ironworks it seemed appropriate.
