The Ruhr Area - a region with a heart

A trip to the Ruhr Area is always a good idea! Eleven exciting cities and four counties await you, offering you plenty of things to experience. Unique industrial monuments, a multitude of cycle paths, exciting sights and - to some it may surprise - a lot of nature: All of this is the Ruhr Area.

Orientation in the Ruhr Area

The Ruhr Area is crossed by motorways and railway lines, rivers and canals. One city merges unnoticed into another, closely grown into one another, which can only be distinguished by the fact that the cars parked at the roadside have different license plates. In a region that stretches 116 kilometres east-west and 67 kilometres north-south, you need some orientation. Get an overview and plan your trip to the Ruhr Area!
