Lovers of gambling could consider a couple of spots in the Ruhr Metropolis worthy of a visit to partake of their sport. In fact, the Ruhr region boasts Germany’s some of the most modern and largest casinos in the country.

Roulette, Blackjack and Poker tables abound. And for those that prefer them, so do slot machines. The entertainment environment in Dortmund’s casino includes fine dining in a Michelen® starred restaurant. In contrast, the casino in Duisburg offers a slick bar and tasty snacks.

It may come as a surprise of newly arrived expats that beaches can be found in the Ruhr Metropolis. Fine sand and shingle are ideal for walking, playing, relaxing and picnicking. People flock to enjoy spaces beside the rivers and lakes, especially on warm and sunny summer days. Photo © Ralph Lueger.

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.
