Bottrop Greeters - Free walks and hidden gems


Bottrop in the Ruhr region, very different from what you think.

Do you know Bottrop? Not yet? Then it’s time to get to know the city and us.

And we’re sure you’ll be surprised. Discover Bottrop on the northern edge of the Ruhr region in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia alongside a Greeter. Immerse yourself in the history of mining, which has shaped the city over the last 200 years. Where collieries and coal dominated the landscape until 2018, you can now see greenery and industrial culture as far as the eye can see. Everything is in a state of flux and very different to how you imagine the Ruhrpott.



Personal and free

Greeter welcome guests to their city and take them on an individual tour. We love our city and will accompany you through our city - completely free of charge, as is common among friends. You will experience very personal and individual tours and can learn about everyday life in our city.
