At the heart of the Ruhr district lies Bochum, the sixth largest city in North Rhine Westphalia. Just a few decades ago the coal, iron and steel industry dominated here. Today, reminders of this past are provided in particular by the mining museum with its head tower, which is visible from afar.
Bochum is one of the most important centres of the Ruhr district, characterised by a broad range of cultural, educational and service facilities. Around 40,000 students are enrolled at the Ruhr University and a further eight institutions, lending the city and young and dynamic atmosphere. An extensive selection of cultural attractions are on offer from the theatre, the Bochum symphony orchestra, the Ruhrtriennale and the musical “Starlight Express”. The city life is also further enriched by the diverse choice of restaurants. For those seeking recuperation, numerous parks, woodland areas, the Ruhr and the Ruhr reservoir offer opportunities to relax as well as providing space for sports and leisure activities. Bochum is an excellent place to live due to the mixture of good shopping facilities, a comprehensive selection of educational institutions, diverse cultural establishments and an excellent infrastructure.
