Völklingen, Germany - 11th October 2014

By: Doctor Who

Today I am in völklingen  to visit the old ironwork.

The Völklingen Ironworks (German: Völklinger Hütte) is located in the German town of Völklingen, Saarland. In 1994, it was declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
The ironworks, which cover some 6 ha, dominate the city of Völklingen. Although they have recently gone out of production, they are the only intact example, in the whole of western Europe and North America, of an integrated ironworks that was built and equipped in the 19th and 20th centuries and has remained intact.


I am standing in front of a picture  as  the people are working in side the Ironworks

It looks bad,
all full smoke and fume







the machines are very large
and dirty







It's amazing, here,
dozens of people have been working there

the pilgrimage site *seyed hamze* was our next goal!! and also we had a glance, at a sangak bakery to see how they are making this tasty bread!!

from there we went to the potters house!!!!!!!! a favorite place of ipue!!! it's an old mansion from the qajar era with a nice yard with a bassin in the middle! it's a life museum, and there are a pottery workshop with many potter's wheels and a traditional kiln and other classrooms! and upstairs there is a permanent exhibition of work pieces of tabriz potters!! we love the salon with it's beautiful windows with coloured glass!! and we were so excited so see there a workpiece from ipuenktchen, too, (in the photo in the right where we were looking from above!!!) and we made all our efforts to see as much as possible!!

and a yummy pastry we bought at ipue's favorite confectionary; you may see us in the afternoon at home - and instead of a late lunch we ate all the cake at once!!!!!!!!!!! and believe it, nobody got sick!!! lucky toyvoyagers we are!!!!!
