Trinkhalle im Ruhrgebiet, © Ruhr Tourismus, Simon Albersmeier


Konter­mag is four times awe­some.

Where Lehm­bruch loves eat­ing curry­wurst, think­ing about candy

The Ruhr jewels of Dortmund, Bochum, Essen and Duisburg portrayed in a noisy rather than shiny way. The Ruhr Area is where Wilhelm Lehmbruck lays by the Ruhr riverside with his currywurst sausage and looks at disused smelting furnaces while dreaming about gummi bears from the Trinkhalle. The second edition of the highly recommended and English language magazine Kontermag will be published in 2018. Read it and see it for yourself – or even better: put it in your suitcase and check out the Ruhrpott, it’s worth it.
