Bochum

Specialty Museums · Room Escape Games · Performances
Once a booming mining city and a critical piece of Germany’s heavily industrialized Ruhr region, Bochum today has morphed into a major hub of the service sector. Though the days of factories and heavy machinery may be over, Bochum’s past is preserved in its wealth of former working sites-turned museums. Despite being heavily bombed during the Second World War, many important historic landmarks in the center remain today, along with their traditions that include, among other things, a vibrant beer-brewing industry. Its many green spaces within the city also lend it a natural feel and provide an interesting juxtaposition of nature and technological development. In addition to its physical traits, Bochum serves as the Ruhr area’s cultural heart, and a center for the performing arts in the region.
