It's time again: The Night of Industrial Heritage on 29 June 2019 puts the Ruhr region in an eight-hour whirl of highlights. At 50 venues in 24 cities between Moers and Hamm, more than 2,000 artists will be demonstrating their creativity from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. One thing is certain: this night is not for sleeping!
This year the Night of Industrial Heritage will take visitors on a journey into the future: board a sailing ship on a futuristic odyssey in Duisburg, marvel at visionary designs for tomorrow's Ruhr district in Bochum and enjoy virtual reality football in Dortmund. If you prefer the nostalgic view back into the past, be prepared for historical roads and railways, the smell of a steam engine, 100 years of Bauhaus and the sound of Rock'n'Roll and Rockabilly.
Culinary delights are also on offer, and the density of fireworks, light installations and light shows illuminating this very special night are most probably unique in the world. To experience all this, visitors only need a single ticket. On top there is free travel on public transport and numerous shuttle buses. If you prefer to travel on two wheels, you can follow the abundant routes for cyclists across the Ruhr region. On that night, there are even extra cycle tours leading from one highlight to the next.
