Fancy seeing Belval from above? Climb the 180 steps up blast furnace A, and you'll be rewarded by breathtaking views of the new town quarter and the surrounding area. At a height of 40 metres, on what was once the charging platform with the opening to the blast furnace, you can see as far as France.
Information panels on the signposted visitors' tour tell the story of how the blast furnace worked and of pig-iron production. On enquiry, the Fonds Belval will also provide two-hour group tours in German, French and Luxembourgian that also include the "Belval & More" exhibition.
Furthermore, several times a year the blast furnace plant is opened at night to visitors, for instance during the Blast Furnace Festival in July. Equipped with a helmet and torch, visitors can climb the 180 steps and enjoy the sights and lights of Belval by night.
