Things to do


The people of the Ruhr Metropolis love to enjoy themselves. And with some five million residents waiting to be entertained, many famous names have set up home in the region. Wonderful spaces for recreation and amusement parks have been created here for young and old alike.

Expats can head out into the countryside by themselves to walk or to go hiking. Studying creatures of the sea, bathing in the glorious atmosphere of Hollywood or experiencing giant building blocks from childhood days, for instance, are all possible in the region.

Socialising in the Ruhr

Staying in touch and getting together with others living in a similar situation can be important. Expat groups in social media are highly valuable sources for connecting. Socialising in the Ruhr Metropolis can include events, international clubs or heading for a popular spot to meet international residents.
