Cultural travels

“If someone goes on a journey, he wants to experience something”

150 years of industrial history turned the Ruhr area into a multi-faceted and vast urban agglomeration. It is difficult to differentiate between important and unimportant matters. Our excursions establish interrelations and allow the traveller to understand the region. We guide you on a private and exclusive expedition to extraordinary spots throughout the Ruhr area, according to your individual interests. We let you experience the special charm and the lively and authentic local colour - we give the myth a helping hand. We promise you unforgettable impressions and make you participate in our enthusiasm for the area.
