There are quite a few industrial world heritage site on the UNESCO list, amongst whom is the former Ironworks complex in Völklingen: The Völklinger Hütte.

Voelklingen

Erected in 1881, the plant began producing in 1883 and stayed into production until 1986.
In 1994 it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list as this is the only intact example of an integrated ironworks from this period.
