Inoperative coal mines, coking plants and steel mills – these contemporary witnesses of the mining industry present themselves all across the Ruhr Area as they developed into fascinating temples of culture.
A stage at a water purification works, a production at a gasometer or a
performance at a colliery: the creative use of industrial monuments in
– including those found on the Route of Industrial Heritage
– has transformed the region from an area of industry into a centre for culture.
The annual “Night of Industrial Culture” of the Ruhr Metropolis composes 48 venues and 500 events in only one night again. Winding towers, gasometer and wage halls turn into stages for streetart, poetry slam, music and theatre performances, light and pyro shows.
Allow yourself to be captivated by the unique atmosphere of this night and be sure to go on an exciting expedition through the Ruhr Metropolis!
