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.

which place has the most jewellery shops and manufacturers in Europe?

In the "Museum of the Jewellery Quarter", an anchor point along the European Route of Industrial Heritage, visitors can watch goldsmiths and silversmiths at work in original jewellery workshops.
