Ruhr Park

Reviewed By Cadhlan - Nurmijarvi, Finland

Good selection of shops but in the bad weather and winter time it not as nice as an indoor shopping center. It is missing Karstad and some of the shops are quite small. Indoor foodcourt with different style restaurants. Clean and free toilets. Lots of parking space. Saturday is a rush. Day time Friday was very good time to visit!

LWL-Industriemuseum Schiffshebewerk Henrichenburg

Reviewed By RHAHJ - Nijmegen, The Netherlands

This is one of the finest pieces of industrial heritage in the German Ruhr-area. The lift itself is the highlight. From the higher parts one gets a nice view over the environment. In additional buildings one can see Exhibitions with steam engines and about the history of the ship lift, and about a number of shipwrecks (not sure whether the latter is permanent). One can also visit a museum ship. There are buses coming here, but it's not the easiest place to reach by public transport.

Mystery Agents

Reviewed By tojoda - Datteln, Germany

Dies war uns erster, aber garantiert nicht unser letzter Escape Room.
Für uns Anfänger war die besonders freundliche Begrüßung und Einführung perfekt. Man merkte, dass der Owner selbst Spaß an der Sache hat, so dass dem folgenden Rätselvergnügen nichts mehr im Wege stand.
Der Raum war mit viel Liebe zum Detail gestaltet. Die Rätsel waren abwechslungsreich.
Der Schwierigkeitsgrad passte für unsere Gruppe. Jeder konnte etwas zur Gesamtlösung beitragen, so dass wir auch das Ziel erreichen konnten.
Insgesamt eine gelungene Aktion, die uns allen positiv im Gedächtnis bleiben wird.

Halde Hoheward

Reviewed By Lisa E - Uppsala, Uppsala Län, Sweden

Well, since this is the largest stock-pile in Europe the ride by bike upwards through the serpentine-routs shouldn't be to easy. Huge views over the landscape, pretty nice stuff at top. The obelisk was a bit smaller than expected though. Cool that the pile is still growing! Large machines came all time loaded with.. pile material.

Cranger Kirmes

Germany's second-biggest funfair after Oktoberfest, Cranger Kirmes in Hernes stands out its focus on carnival attractions rather than beer consumption. The festival does provide a giant beer tent, but the main draw remains the 500-odd showmen and their roller coasters, ghost trains, games, and curios spread out over an 111,000-square-meter space. Originally founded in the 15th century as a horse market, Cranger Kirmes soon evolved into an entertainment event replete with jugglers and magicians. Today, the colorful funfair welcomes about 4 million visitors over 10 days starting the first Friday of August.

If you do like fun fairs then you should definitely go. But don´t think it is a good idea to go by car. You should really take public Transportation opportunities (they have Special busses) because parking possibilities are limited and maybe expensive.
You can find a lot of nice offers to eat and drink, do lottery, Shooting stands, rollercoaster and amusment houses (mirror house, Horror house and so on). Also a lot of sales boths offer textiles, bags, kitchen & household products.

This museum is a lovingly renovated industrial monument. It is a very authentic witness from the time were industrial buildings have been not only functional. Very nice the Jugendstil entrance portal. Very suitable for families (even on the financial side).

Reviewed By Sebastian_K79 - Essen, Germany

Im denkmalgeschützten Umspannwerk gibt es eine gute Mischung an Mitmach-Experimenten, Informationen über die Geschichte der Stromerzeugung sowie Alltagsgegenstände mit Strombezug aus den letzten 90 Jahren. Vor allem bei den Dingen der 80er und 90er Jahre hatten wir viel Spaß beim Wiedererkennen der Dinge die es damals in jeder Wohnung gab. Weiterhin haben wir uns beim Werbefilm im kleinen Kino sowie bei den "Werbetafeln für Strom" kaputtgelacht.

Botanischer Garten (Ruhr Universitat Bochum)

Reviewed By Ciocionheart - Europe

The botanical garden has been a refreshing companion at the time of my studies in Bochum. There is not a particular spot I would recommend. Just walking around down the hill to the lake is beautiful. There are many signs to illustrate the plants and recently Q codes have been added to access online material about the place.
