This guided tour takes you deep into the Meiderich Steel Mill and the technical aspects and working conditions of steel production. You get to see all the stations the steel goes through once it leaves the furnace. The sheer volume of all the scaffolding, pipes, boilers, stairs, and platforms is dazzling, and the mill’s significance for the coal and steel industry is a marvel. These days, the mill is the backdrop for one of the region's most visited attractions, Landschaftspark Duisburg - a former industrial park that is now an adventure and nature park. This contrast makes the steel mill a symbol of the entire region's transformation from industrial to cultural center. The tour takes about 2 exciting hours - filled with gems from steel manufacturing history, furnace technology, and the busy cultural center.

One of the region’s most popular destinations, Movie Park Bottrop is the rare place that offers something for every taste. It features an amusement park with great rides, Hollywood and film production flair for movie fans, amazing shows, and of course an extensive program for kids of all ages. The park’s location in western North-Rhine Westphalia makes it a great destination for a day trip, but is also worth a longer trip for a whole weekend.
It’s the only zoo of its kind in Europe. On more than 30 hectares, different parts of the world are recreated as animal habitats – Alaska, Africa, and Asia – so that a visit to Zoom becomes a trip around the world in one day. The various habitats are built to high standards, so that each is an authentic natural representation and a place very much like the homes of the 900 animals and 100 species that live here – river banks, lake areas, expansive wet and grass lands, jungles, and rock formations. Almost invisible borders between habitats and people offer unique ways to encounter the animals from all over the world. Additional attractions include the Alaska Ice Adventure, motion ride simulations through Alaska’s vegetation zones, and a boat tour on the African Queen on the Africa Lake. A great destination for all ages.

A great addition to a student and youth program.
Hardly any other building reflects the remarkable changes of the region – from dark industrial center to high-quality living spaces – as well as the new "Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena" (named after its sponsor). The venue is a multi-function arena, and the tour is an exploration of the remarkable designs in both outer and inner structures. The arena is the home of the football club MSV Duisburg. The club’s players are called "zebras" by their fans, and on this tour you will sea first-hand what it takes for them to play and win in this arena and feel the fascination and emotion of the game. Moreover, you get access to places that are closed to regular visitors such as the player’s cabin, the VIP area, and of course right on the playing field!
