At St. Antony

It sounds like a crime thriller: Even before 1800 things in Oberhausen-Osterfeld revolved around a lot of money, bribery, fraud and the use of firearms. The thrilling history of the St. Antony-Hütte – the first ironworks in the Ruhr region which went into operation in 1758 is recounted in this tour.

The route passes through the history from the difficult beginnings of ironworking in the Ruhr region in the early period of industrialisation to the Oberhausen-based global company, Gutehoffnungshütte.

In the industrial-archaeological park the excavated remains of the former ironworks are brought back to life in film animations.
