Emscher Landscape Park

The Metropolis Ruhr' central Park

Experience the transformation of the Ruhr industrial region to a green city landscape with industrial heritage, panoramic views and great art in unusual places. A convenient road network brings you to recreational facilities and sights between Dortmund, Essen and Duisburg – also by bicycle or on foot. The Emscher Landscape Park consists of many individual parks, industrial nature and artistic landmarks; for example the Duisburg-Nord Landscape Park, the Tetraeder in Bottrop, the Westpark with the Century Hall in Bochum and the Hoheward tip in Herten/Recklinghausen.
