Bochum is a city in the Rhine-Ruhr Metropolitan Region in western Germany. Like many of the cities in the Ruhr Valley, Bochum grew thanks to its industrious history, particularly via coal mining and steel manufacturing facilities.

To learn more about the industries that made Bochum, visit the German Mining Museum, the largest mining museum in the world. It displays the lasting effects mining had on the community, from its social and cultural impact to its economic and ecological consequences. You can't miss the green winding tower rising above the museum; this industrial structure was once part of a coal mine but now offers visitors panoramic views over the Ruhr.

For those who prefer the outdoors to the underground, visit the Ruhr University Bochum Botanical Garden. Opened in 1968, this garden has numerous greenhouses, each housing an impressive display of plants and shrubs from around the world. The Tierpark und Fossilium Bochum is another great outdoor activity, home to almost 4,000 animals and an impressive fossil collection.

Many ICE trains connect Bochum to the rest of Germany and Europe via the city's main railway station. Regional trains also depart and arrive frequently. Book a bus on Sindbad or FlixBus into Bochum for travel by road from various destinations around the continent.
