Are you free from giddiness?

How about counting the stairs to the very top of the blast furnaces and the viewing platform. Can you imagine: An ironworker had to walk this way more than once a day.

Viewing platform

Blast Furnace 5, which you can climb up to the very top, is a real highlight of the Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord. Here visitors not only have the opportunity to understand the blast furnace process but, from a height of 70 metres, they can enjoy a far-reaching view of Duisburg, the western Ruhr District and the Lower Rhine. A steel staircase takes visitors up to the viewing platform on the top of the blast furnace.

Entry to Blast Furnace 5 and its viewing platform is free and both are open 24/7 but, in the case of snow, ice or stormy weather, the blast furnace is closed for safety reasons.
