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.

Do you know...

where you can visit Europe's highest winding tower?

In Outokumpu, a town in the east of Finland with scarcely 8,000 inhabitants. Once Outokumpu was the largest mining town in Finland. Mining of copper ore started in 1913 and ended in 1989. In 1954 the Keretti shaft was sunk and topped by a 96 m winding tower, the highest in Europe. When the mine ceased working all buildings were pulled down except the winding tower. Today it is a far visible landmark and stands for the mining history of the region.
