Icon: Xtra: UNESCO World Heritage SitesIndustrial heritage sites of outstanding universal value: European industrial properties on UNESCO's World Heritage List

Europe's industrial heritage is represented on the UNESCO World Heritage List by 43 sites. These are either

  • individual sites (such as the Völklingen Ironworks in Völklingen/D),
  • groups of sites (such as the 4 Major Mining Sites of Wallonia/B) or
  • landscapes or towns influenced by industrialization (such as Blaenavon Industrial Landscape in South Wales/GB, the Nord-Pas de Calais Mining Basin/F or the city of Ivrea/I, shaped by the Olivetti company) as well as
  • industrial monuments as part of World Heritage Sites (such as the silk weavers' quarter in the Historic Site of Lyon/F),

all of outstanding universal value, which is a requirement for inscription as a World Heritage Site.

Accordingly, in our list you will find individual sites, linear sites and industrial landscapes that have been inscribed on the World Heritage List. The "formal" names of the industrial properties on the World Heritage List can be found in our link list (see "Related Links"); at the bottom of the link list you can also find the industrial WHS outside Europe (14).
