Weekend trip

Disco, design, canned beer - a unique bike tour

Day 1: ‘Tour de Biergarten’

Discover the honest, unvarnished Ruhr region - by bike in a beer garden. For lunch there's a curry sausage, chips and delicious beer! With a bit of luck, you'll also get a few unvarnished words of wisdom from some of the Ruhr's originals for free. If the tap is already running, why not make a detour to the Fitzpatricks Irish Pub or the Dampfe in Essen Borbeck. Both places offer a strong base for the evening and delicious home-brewed beer. Before you head off into the night, you should recharge your batteries. After your break, it's off to Essen's nightlife. For electro fans, there are really only two places to go: the Goethebunker in the former air-raid shelter or the legendary Hotel Shanghai .

Day 2: A day of contrasts

After a night of drinking, you need a relaxing contrast programme. Your very own little temple of Wellne(s)t is just the right place. Tip: Book well in advance! Freshly rested and sweaty, head to the Red Dot Design Museum on the grounds of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Zeche Zollverein . Europe's largest collection of contemporary design awaits you here; from toasters to bicycles - surprises guaranteed! Afterwards, the Kokerei will provide you with a tasty snack for your journey home.
