Culture: Art is the Culture
Culture is defined as being involved in the arts of dance, museums, modern dance, opera, and theater. One of the most famous museums for fine arts is the Von der Heydt-Museum. One can find paintings from the 19th century here, including Picasso and Monet. Visit the influential choreographer's legacy of a dance company, Pina Bausch.

Activities: On the Green and Beyond
Locals know how to have a good time. With the booming technological center of business, activities can be expected to take place in natural settings. Nordpark is the perfect place for a nice relaxing stroll, while Burgholz forest is more of an all-day adventure through its 130 rare tree species. Don't forget to stop by the unique shops for one-of-a-kind finds at City-Arkaden. One thing that the city is most confident in besides the arts is its nightlife scenery. And of course, a stay here wouldn’t be complete without a ride on the famous suspended monorail! End your visit with seductive jazz shows and many other genres of music.
