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

Currently we present 1,315 sites in 45 European countries. Among these sites there are around 90 Anchor Points which build the virtual ERIH main route. On nineteen 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.
