The week October 16-23: original language movies with times and locations in cinemas across the Ruhr region in English: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Joker, Gemini Man, Blinded by the Light, After The Wedding, Skin, Midsommar, The White Crow, Downton Abbey, Harald & Maude.

OV & OmU Films in DU, E, DO, GE, HA, OB, Ruhr

A few opportunities are available for film lovers in Duisburg, Dortmund, Essen, Gelsenkirchen, Hagen and Oberhausen in the Ruhr region to view OV and OmU movies and films. Run times may be short because of the more limited number of original and subtitled copies in circulation. And smaller audiences.

Foreigners, expats should watch out for abbreviations such as OV, original version or OmU, original with subtitles (Original mit Untertiteln) and sometimes with the language of the subtitle declared OmdtU, original with German subtitles (Original mit deutsche Untertiteln). The logic and style of listings vary greatly among these dedicated creative types that run their cinemas and movie theaters (theatres).

Please confirm dates, times and locations of screenings with the cinemas before going to avoid any possible disappointment.

Jaywalking ist Verboten!

Crossing a street in Germany to this day still reveals a discipline that is seldom experienced elsewhere. When the red light is showing at a pedestrian crossing, people mostly wait for a green one. Often for excruciatingly long periods on completely empty streets.

Sleeping Over

A wide range of hotels is available in and around the Ruhr Metropolis. A few five star establishments, business and four stars to small and cosy guesthouses, a room can be found to suit most needs. Further hotels can be found on the periphery in both the state capital of Düsseldorf and also Cologne.

Christmastime Trip to the Ruhr Region

Experience the true German Christmas tradition this year at a marvellous Christmas market in the Ruhr Metropolis. Stand below an imposing 45 metre high tree and taste the scent of Yuletide a mere one hour flight from many of Europe's airports. All possible on a magical Christmastime trip to the Ruhr.

Museum Folkwang opened January 2010 when Essen and the Ruhr Area became one of Europe’s Capitals of Culture for that year. The collections of the museum are as varied as they are vast; paintings, sculptures and objects, photographs, graphics and posters.
