    Kulinarische Vielfalt und Kultur
    Bochum
    Bermuda3Eck
    Between Südring and Konrad-Adenauer-Platz, something has grown here in over 30 years that enjoys cult status even beyond the borders of the Ruhr region. Every year, four million visitors from all over flock to Bochum's lively city center and enjoy the diversity of the Bermuda3Eck, with a gastronomic landscape comprising almost 90 establishments. Whether it's a snack, upscale cuisine, shopping, entertainment or culture - you'll find it all here, to suit every taste and in one place. The Bermuda3Eck also offers the "real" cult sausage from Dönninghaus. In the Bratwursthaus, visitors can enjoy the unforgettable original currywurst, a cultural treasure sung about by Herbert Grönemeyer. In Wattenscheid, especially in connection with the games of the SG 09 in the Lohrheide stadium, the Thiers sausage is usually on the grill. Another version is available at the Wattenscheid professional grill of chef Raimund Ostendorp, who moved from a 3-star restaurant to a chip shop. The open-air season at the Bermuda 3Eck opens with "Stühle raus!" (Chairs out!). Then the pub mile turns into a street party. Bochum Total is also a special highlight. The music festival is the largest inner-city open-air festival in Europe. Every year, many hundreds of thousands of visitors make the pilgrimage to Bochum's city center. The program always convinces with its trend-setting line-up: Stars like Reamonn, Seeed or Silbermond played at the open-air festival, which was already established in 1986, even before their big breakthrough.

    Naturidylle am Stadtrand
    Bochum
    Natural idyll on the outskirts of the city
    It is an artificial inland body of water that covers an area of over 10 hectares and serves as a local recreation area. There is a walking path around the lake that is 1.5 kilometers long and is therefore often used for jogging. There is also a dog meadow on the edge, a circular trail with 16 stations where you can call up information using a QR code and a "green classroom" where you can book excursions with the Herne Biological Station. There is also fitness equipment on the lakeside path. There is also a roller-skating rink, a beer garden and a large playground next to the lake. There are two small islands in the lake itself, which serve as a refuge and breeding ground for a number of water birds, including grey herons, cormorants, coots, kingfishers, Egyptian and Canada geese and mallards. A fountain in the water supplies the water with oxygen. Lake Ümmingen originated from the Suntum mill ponds, which were a reservoir for the Harpen stream. Since the 18th century, Lake Ümmingen has been used to purify the mine water from the surrounding collieries. The solid load, i.e. the coal-containing solids, settled in the calm waters and could be removed from the bottom of the lake after sedimentation. Lake Ümmingen was therefore essential for purifying the water in the area of the surrounding mines. Between 1995 and 2009, the Ümminger Summertime festival was held at Lake Ümmingen, which featured concerts, open-air discos and a model boat regatta.
