Steel Experience

Plant Tours

Dear Visitors,

Please note that the existing regulations for our plant tours and hygiene measures do persist until further notice:

We currently run plant tours (at present without visits inside the workshop facilities) for groups, during which it is only permitted to exit the bus in the outdoor areas of the premises. These tours take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, in the morning and afternoon. The exact starting times can be found in the booking tool.

The number of participants per group tour is restricted to a maximum of 10. An additional tour can be booked in parallel if there are more people wishing to take part.

The tours are subject to what is known in Germany as the “3G rule”, i.e. participants must present verification that they are fully vaccinated against or have recovered from Covid-19, or provide proof of a negative PCR or antigen diagnostic test result obtained no more than 48 hours previously. Furthermore, our guests must wear a surgical face mask and keep a distance of at least 1.5 meters from other people.

These requirements are based on the pandemic-related hygiene guidelines applied by thyssenkrupp Steel Europe AG. In this way we aim to offer you – our guests – but also our plant staff the highest possible level of safety.

We look forward to your visit.

The world is changing, and steel is part of the transformation.

High-quality steel is indispensable in a sustainable society. It helps make electric motors run, is a key element in wind turbines, is recyclable, and offers almost unrivalled durability.

thyssenkrupp Steel has set out to make its steel production climate-neutral – shaping the future of steel production with a comprehensive conversion of its production facilities together with investments in new technologies.

We invite you to experience the transformation of steel production. During a plant tour of the Duisburg site, our visitor guides will give you an informative insight into the production processes of today and tomorrow.

Our plant sites

Duisburg is Europe’s biggest steelmaking site. This is where steel production takes place – from pig iron manufacture to end product.

The tours conducted by our team are currently restricted to the Duisburg plant. Tours of other plants – in Bochum, Dortmund, Eichen and Andernach – are exclusively for trade professionals.

Your safety is our priority

Pandemic-related hygiene regulations

Entry to the thyssenkrupp Steel plant site is subject to what in Germany is called the “3G rule”, i.e. entry is restricted to persons presenting verification that they are fully vaccinated against or have recovered from Covid-19, or who present verification of a negative PCR or antigen diagnostic test result obtained no more than 24 hours previously. For the entire time you are on the site it is compulsory to wear a surgical face mask and keep a minimum distance of at least 1.5 meters from other people. Please wash and sanitize your hands regularly and thoroughly, and adhere to the applicable hygiene regulations for plant tours.

Safety regulations for plant tours

Your personal safety has priority on a plant tour.

We therefore kindly request you to observe and comply with the instructions on safety and clothing and ensure that all participants are made aware of these. You will be provided with the necessary protective equipment on site. Please follow the instructions given by our experienced guides on the day of your visit.

Please note that the minimum age for participation in a tour is 16. The factory tours are not barrier-free.

Tour participants must wear sturdy, enclosed shoes and dirt-resistant clothing covering the whole body – even in hot summer temperatures. Please understand that we will not allow visitors to enter the plant area without appropriate clothing.

People with limited mobility, wheelchair users, wearers of active body aids (e.g. pacemakers) and pregnant women are advised not to take part in a plant tour. This is for their own well-being.
