Thank you in advance for sharing your experience, ;)


If you like to go for a walk, go to the Baldeneysee. it is very beautiful. And if you are interested in industrial culture and the history of that area, go to Zeche Zollverein.
Here in Ruhr area all cities are close together, so you can also quickly go to other places. Six lakes area in Duisburg for example is very nice, also sports park Duisburg Wedau. Take a look at the picture I posted in the Germany forum. It is one of the lakes in sports park Duisburg Wedau.
