The Ruhr metropolitan area, which comprises 53 towns and communities, ranks as the most powerful economic region in Germany. Why? Quite simply because the best infrastructure in Europe is right on our doorstep. Motorways and railways combine with air and sea links to create an unbeatable transport network that enables us to reach millions of people around the world. With creative minds and a certain Ruhr valley charm, we compete directly with the likes of London and Paris.
