Industrial ruins have been transformed into thriving new spaces for leisure activities, art and culture. It is these that shape the image of a major, modern city, a city that
combines a dynamic business ethic with a relaxed approach to life.
We hope we can show you, through this website, what it is that makes Bochum so special. At the same time, we hope it will serve as an invitation to visit us. We look forward to welcoming you to our city
An exciting city to visit
Bochum is well worth a visit, not least on account of its buzzing cultural scene, a whole host of performance spaces and a world-famous orchestra. The richness of its museums - which include the German Mining Museum and Bochum Art Museum - is the stuff of legend.
Added to this are the many and varied leisure opportunities, beautiful parks and, last but not least, the vibrant night-life to be enjoyed in Bochum's Bermuda Triangle district. The better you get to know this charming city in the heart of Germany's Ruhr region, the more we know you'll love it.
