Welcome to Bochum

Bermuda3Eck in Bochum, die legendäre Ausgehmeile im Ruhrgebiet

Bochum has reinvented itself. From what was once a coal mining town, the city has developed into a key scientific centre and a city brimming with culture.

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
