Bochum neighbourhood

Bochum is much more than the city in the industrial Ruhr area, characterised by mining. Today, old collieries are cultural spaces for various museums, restaurants and events. Students in Bochum benefit from a wide range of subjects and numerous courses of study. And if you are not at the campus, you can enjoy wide café facilities, sunbathe at Kemnader lake or enjoy good drinks at the student well-known Bermuda Triangle.

Here are our favourite Bochum spots.
