Casting House

Where the fire lives

In the once red hot casting houses one, two and three, the molten pig iron from the blast furnaces emerged into the outside world for further processing.

Today no molten pig iron flows any more across the fire proof floor. Fire and passion are now only generated by the people who use the various buildings for a rich variety of events and cultural projects. Concerts or theatre performances are as much part of the programme as climbers craving adventure and visitors eager for knowledge.

Duisburg’s Summer Cinema attracts both young and old to Casting House 1, which is protected by a special foil cushion roof. “Expedition Steel”, the high ropes course, begins in Casting House 2 and Casting House 3 next to Blast Furnace 5, left in its original state, is a stop for many of the guided tours around the park.
