Factory tours

Who has never dreamed of seeing how to drive a tramway, how textiles are manufactured, or how electricity is produced from waste?

Mulhouse, industrial area

Mulhouse and its region, an industrial area, owe their fame to these world-class businesses and iconic industries such as the textile, food industry and transportation sectors. In fact, it already has a number of museums and ecomuseums that preserve and promote the heritage of yesterday and tomorrow. Industrial-sounding names like La Filature (spinning mill) or La Fonderie (foundry) have transcended time to become places of culture and education. In Mulhouse, brownfield sites get a new lease of life.
