Zeltfestival Ruhr - a day’s holiday at Kemnader See

Zeltfestival Ruhr is one of the largest and most spectacular cultural festivals in the Ruhr region, taking place in a Mediterranean atmosphere on the shores of the Kemnader See in Bochum. The Zeltfestival Ruhr enchants the audience with changing performances and world-renowned artists. A varied gastronomy mile and the famous “Markt der Möglichkeiten” (Market of Opportunities) complete the full events calendar.

Wide range of programmes at Kemnader See

This cultural event in Bochum has a wide range of programmes on the stage for adults and children on a festival site of around 25,000 m². A utopian world of experiences can be found on the shores of Kemnader See in Bochum until 2 September. Illuminations, street artists, musicians, experienced chefs, comedians, craftsmen, and a celebratory atmosphere await.<br/> "Live on Stage" at Zeltfestival Ruhr 2018 are, amongst others, James Blunt, Matthias Reim, Adel Tawil, Atze Schröder, A-ha, Julia Engelmann, Johannes Oerding, Sebastian Fitzek, Michael Mittermeier, and many more.  

Exciting support programme

Even without a concert ticket, the exciting support programme is worth a visit and costs €4. Various themed tents are an invitation to wander around and be artistically inspired on the traditional “Markt der Möglichkeiten” with over 80 stands, relax on the beach or enjoy the first-class gastronomy area, which also features a “Naschmarkt” (similar to its Viennese counterpart) this year. This also attracts international specialities to the area. Amongst other things, look forward to French specialities such as oysters and cremant, Spanish tapas, baumstriezel, and Japanese sushi.

A sense of well-being at Zeltfestival Ruhr

For many visitors Zeltfestival Ruhr means a little slice of holiday from what is ordinary. To ensure such a feeling, much work has gone into the logistics of the event and the location over the course of the previous years. There aren’t just quality sanitary arrangements and heated eating areas nowadays, but also more parking spaces and an e-bike garage. In addition, a special line was set up that takes visitors from Bochum Hauptbahnhof to the festival four times per hour.<br/> Get your tickets at the advance bookings offices or online.
