Welcome

to the European Route of Industrial Heritage, the tourism information network of industrial heritage in Europe. 

Currently we present more than 1,000 sites in 43 European countries. Among these sites there are 80 Anchor Points which build the virtual ERIH main route. On sixteen Regional Routes you can discover the industrial history of these landscapes in detail. All sites relate to thirteen European Theme Routes which show the diversity of European industrial history and their common roots.

How this came to be so is made clear by the Holland Route, one of the regional routes along the European Route of Industrial Heritage. Today the museum in the old De Cruquius pumping station shows how three steam-driven water drawing machines reclaimed an area of more than 18.000 hectares from Lake Haarlem.
