ERIH, the European Route of Industrial Heritage, is the tourism information network of industrial heritage in Europe. The network is run by the ERIH association, which has more than 300 members in 28 countries. Over 100 member sites are Anchor Points, sites of exceptional historical importance in terms of industrial heritage which also offer a high quality visitor experience. Regional Routes introduce in more detail the industrial history of landscapes, which were particularly influenced by industrialisation. All locations are assigned to one or more of 16 European Theme Routes, which represent branches of industry and show the variety and - together with over 185 biographies - the interlinkages of European industrial history and their common roots. In total we present over 2,000 sites worth visiting on our website from all (50) European countries. ERIH is certified as a "Cultural Route of the Council of Europe”.
