I moved to this state in the very west of Germany in summer 2002 and I love this part of the country --- cities like Cologne, Essen, Duisburg, Dortmund, Bochum, Oberhausen, Düsseldorf etc etc.
There is industry and interesting places all over the shop and it's really interesting to see all the ports and coalmines, the footie stadiums and the green bits. Plus it only takes you seconds to get from one city to the next so you have a great variety of places there!
I will try to show you this variety on this "best of NRW" page...
Make sure not to miss my Zeche Zollverein travelogue with pictures from this former coalmine.
In 2001 the grounds of this pit became Unesco World Heritage. The former factory buildings were partly turned into museums by famous architect Sir Norman Foster.
In 2001 I have been to the indoor skiing place in Bottrop and if you want to try this you should go and try it as well! Have a look at my travelogue for the full story!!!
Glück Auf! (Coalminer's greeting)
- Pros:Lots pf people, sights, green, cities - all so close to each other!
- Cons:You have to be into industrial art to like it! Some people would probably just hate it!
- In a nutshell:I love it here! There's always something new to explore
K21 in the Ständehaus is an old house full of modern art. There's mostly very modern stuff like video installations etc... more travel advice
Cologne Cathedral is the most visited building in Germany. It is a must see on every trip the west of Germany I think.... more travel advice
