The diagonal of zinc

It is also one of the objective of our association to emphazise the european dimension of the Vieille Montagne by promoting the different museums and visitable sites related to this company’s history.
The long term vision is to qualify and structure a real ZINC ROUTE from Sweden to Algeria and from the UK to Germany.
What better to take the European Route of Industrial Heritage (ERIH) as an undisputable reference and to start with pinpointing a initial diagonal of zinc between Liège (B) and Oberhausen (D)

This first journey will allow the visitors to discover 4 museums – members of VMH in which zinc and the company Vieille Montagne takes the prominent role.

Those museums are already partners of ERIH. That’s why you’ll find on the necessary information to reach them. Good visits !
