North Rhine-Westphalia Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Life pulsates in these cities: concerts, musicals and shows in unusual places. Museums, like the big art museums in Bonn, and theaters of all kinds and in great numbers. Shopping that's a real experience. Here, something is always going on! Europe's most dense and diverse cultural region lies here between the Rhine and Weser rivers, with impressive monuments such as the cathedrals of Aachen and Cologne and hundreds of palaces and castles like Hombroich or Bruhl.
Only a stone's throw away of the pulsing cities you will find large recreation areas with forests, hills, fluvial plains and low mountain ranges. Discover the "Bergisches Land" with its famous old churches, the "Teutoburger Wald" or the "Münsterland." Enjoy a romantic weekend, winter walks and fine cuisine or a skiing holiday in the "Sauerland."
