99 steps up to the Skywalk, which leads at a height of 26 meters via a furnace gas pipeline to western blast furnace 5. And there: climb step by step to a height of 64 meters. And what is all this for? You can enjoy a spectacular view of the site of the former iron and steel works and of Dortmund's attractions such as the Phoenix Lake, the Florian or the SIGNAL IDUNA Park and, 'by the way', learn a lot about the city, the region, mining, the steel processing industry and the structural change.

Stop At:

Together with our experienced guide, we start at the "Hüttenmann" on Phoenixplatz and make our way up to the Skywalk. The well-paved path over the blast furnace gas line offers amazing views and great photo opportunities of the Phoenix-West blast furnace plant, which was largely listed in 2002 and where the first blast furnace tapping took place in 1854 and the last in 1998. One of the blast furnaces is the goal at the end of the Skywalk: The western blast furnace 5, which we climb together and gain a further 38 meters in height. Once at the top, the views of Dortmund's landmarks and nature become even more spectacular. At the same time, this special place offers the unique opportunity to imagine what it must have been like to work at the blast furnace on Phoenix-West. After a clear description of this day-to-day work, our tour ends after descending at the foot of the blast furnace.
