Creative people, decision-makers and local patriots - we have an endless supply of them in the Ruhr Valley. Using the hashtag #urbanana, they will advise you about their favourite places in the Ruhr Metropolis. #urbanana provides you with all the information you need about the concentrated urbanity of our urban jungle. Get inspired, take yourself off on a journey of discovery in our creative districts, experience the scenes in Dortmund, Bochum, Essen and Duisburg , visit new bars, go shopping in cool designer stores and enjoy our festivals... Make your trip to the Ruhr Valley a real expedition and navigate your way through the urban (art) locations that perhaps you hadn’t thought of.
The "Going #Urbanana" blog is published by the Canadian blogger Jenna Davis, who is currently living in Düsseldorf, every week, giving tips on particular city areas, events and festivals to explore. Additionally, those active in the creative scene in NRW report on the region’s special features in the bilingual design guide called "Guide to the West", featured in the magazine Heimatdesign.
