The Zollverein World Heritage Site is now the best known industrial monument
in the Ruhr Area, and is the centre point of its creativity-based economy.
The 1st Tag der Trinkhallen (“Day of the Drinks Kiosks”)
On 20 August 2016, the Drinks Kiosk Myth of the Ruhr Metropolis will be staged and celebrated in an unconventional way. Ruhr Tourismus GmbH is organising the first Day of the Drinks Kiosks, staging unusual concerts and exciting readings in 50 kiosks around the region.
There will also be cabaret, theatre, dance, and poetry slam entertainment for the visitors to the drinks kiosks. The performances will be provided free of charge at the drinks kiosks, with the aim of facilitating direct cultural encounters and personal communication between the artists and the guests in an everyday location like the booth on the corner.
