The “Pott” (Ruhr area) is coming to the boil in the coolest locations in the Ruhr Valley! In between glass, steel and bricks, in the pithead baths of former coal mines, between the rusty blast furnaces of former steelworks or in the halls of former gas power stations - the industrial heritage monuments are unique locations for events. And today, there is lots going on: Parties or festivals, celebrations for young people, those who are young at heart, or families, concerts or sporting events, lectures or comedy, cabaret or art, the list goes on... the former industrial sites have spruced themselves up and offer no end of fun and action.
Individual & special
The programme is not all about big celebrations and festivals, lots of smaller and individual events have their own charm and are well worth checking out. We have put together a few recommendations for you. Our recommendation: At an evening event, such as "ExtraSchicht - The Night of Industrial Culture", go for a walk across the site. The industrial monuments make a great impression when lit up and create a very special atmosphere.
