The Ruhr metropolitan area, which comprises 53 towns and communities, ranks as the largest urban 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 60 million people in three European regions. With creative minds and a certain Ruhr valley charm, we can therefore compete directly with the likes of London and Paris.
