Reaching back to nineteen hundred and nine, the museum of art in Mühlheim, Kunstmuseum Mülheim an der Ruhr, exhibits expressionistic paintings and international graphics.

The collection of the institution was rehoused in the impressive and listed building of the old post office, Alte Post, located in the town centre next to the so-called media house, Medienhaus.

The famous collection containing fascinating etchings and lithographs of the Berlin sketcher Heinrich Zille was donated by Karl Themel. A second donation by Karl and Maria Ziegler presents impressive expressionist paintings on canvas and paper.

Original language movies are popular among expats living across the Ruhr Metropolis. Films are screened regularly in English original with subtitles, known as OmU and without, portrayed as OV. A wide variety of cinemas or movie theatres can be found, both large and small.

Public Transport

The public transport system in Ruhr is extensive, safe and normally efficient. A dense network of trams, Strassenbahn, above and below ground as well as buses serve the cities and suburbs. Links via the local and S-Bahn train systems interconnect many neighbouring communities.
