Jahrhunderthalle Bochum – Stirnlampenführung

Discover Industrial Culture

Welcome to Bochum's underground world – discover the massive foundation, the long supply corridors and many walled barracks inside the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum. And experience how a chapter in history comes to life when you walk through the former plant cellar below the hall – by the way, no equipment is required. There is also exciting information about the Jahrhunderthalle's interesting history, which began as a trade fair pavilion in Düsseldorf a good 100 years ago and has only grown to its present size over the years.

We also recommend that you make a detour to the >> Bermuda3Eck, the most famous pub district of the Ruhr metropolis.
