A pretty old town, idyllic hours on the Ruhr and an extra serving of culture. You can expect all of that in pretty Mülheim an der Ruhr. As the only major city in the Ruhr region whose centre is directly on the Ruhr, the river naturally plays a major role here. Do you want to travel through the picturesque Ruhr Valley by boat, explore the region on the Ruhr Valley Cycle Path along the Ruhr or sit at the Wasserbahnhof and enjoy a cold drink? All that is possible in Mülheim an der Ruhr, in the west of the Ruhr region.
Numerous options next to and on the Ruhr
Mülheim an der Ruhr offers not only nature lovers and ‘water babies’ a number of options, culture lovers also get their money’s worth here. For example, in the Camera Obscura, the museum on the history of film, you can discover quirky objects from the film period between 1750 and 1930 or in the Aquarius Wassermuseum learn everything there is to know about water on 14 levels and at 25 multimedia stations. Mülheim’s location directly on the Ruhr gives you the opportunity to experience water ‘live and in colour’. For example, sail through the picturesque Ruhr Valley to Essen-Kettwig on board the Weiße Flotte or get active yourself! With boats belonging to the Grüne Flotte you can ‘pedal’ with your muscle power across the Ruhr and at the same time have a cosy and unusual accommodation for your holiday in the Ruhr region ‘with you’.
