ABOUT ERIH

ERIH, the European Route of Industrial Heritage, is the tourism information network of industrial heritage in Europe. On our website we present over 1,800 sites from all European countries. They include over 100 Anchor Points, sites of exceptional historical importance in terms of industrial heritage which also offer a high quality visitor experience. 19 Regional Routes introduce in more detail the industrial history of landscapes, which were particularly influenced by industrialization. All locations are assigned to 14 European Theme Routes, which show the variety and - together with the 162 biographies - the interlinkages of European industrial history and their common roots. The network is run by an association that has over 250 members in 26 European countries. Since 2019 ERIH has been certified as "Cultural Route of the Council of Europe".
