Supporting programme

Far more than "just" history and stories of coal and steel.

Bochum, as a metropolis in the heart of Europe, is just as important as it is vibrant: Cultural center, university town, business and science hub. Education and research is performed at 15 research institutes and six universities, including the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany's largest campus university. More than twelve museums, the renowned Schauspielhaus theater and numerous cultural events inspire visitors to Bochum. The Bochum Symphony Orchestra, one of the country's top orchestras, "sets the tone".

Since 1986, Europe's largest music event has been taking place in the city: the rock festival "Bochum Total". Companies such as Deutsche Telekom, ThyssenKrupp, VONOVIA, Deutsche BP and GEA make use of the metropolis' many locational advantages right in the middle of the district.

Tourists and residents alike enjoy relaxing "Ruhr hours" around 14 parks and lakes, or the hustle and bustle in the 70 restaurants, nine discotheques, and the cafés and pubs of the legendary "Bermuda Triangle".

In short: The versatile flair, the beautiful corners of the town and the no less attractive edges make Bochum special - and especially worth seeing!

In terms of infrastructure, Bochum and thus the RuhrCongress Bochum, is optimally connected to road, rail and air networks:

  • Central ICE train station
  • Good connections to Dortmund and Düsseldorf airports
  • Dense motorway network
