The Ruhr Region was nominated European Capital of Culture 2010 for undergoing one of the most spectacular metamorphoses from industry to culture and back to nature. Located along the river Ruhr in North Rhine-Westphalia's industrial center, Ruhr2010 was once home to mine shafts and industrial plants and is now being discovered as a very special tourist destination where the existing coal mines make this region a hub for green travelers and art lovers. With an outstanding festival throughout the year, Germany's cultural focus will be on this fascinating urban area in 2010, attracting visitors with versatile events.
