The European Route of Industrial Heritage (ERIH) is a network (theme route) of the most important industrial heritage sites in Europe. The aim of the project is to create interest for the common European Heritage of the Industrialisation and its remains. ERIH also wants to promote regions, towns and sites showing the industrial history and market them as visitor attractions in the leisure and tourism industry.

The – virtual – main route is built by the so-called Anchor Points. These are Industrial Heritage sites which are the historically most important and most attractive for visitors. In a first step the route leads through Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France and Germany.

Regional Routes (like the Route der Industriekultur in the Ruhr) cover regions as where industrial history has left its mark.
