Football and industry: tradition and culture

Top-class football is by far not the only highlight the hometown of the Schalke Bundesliga club has to offer: One of the main attractions is the ZOOM adventure world, a former zoo with 4 different themed areas.

The city's event calendar includes popular music and sports events like the Gelsenkirchen Jazz Days or the Ruhr Olympics. On the Industrial Heritage Trail, visitors can still experience a lot of what once shaped the region so strongly.
