Re­gions in North Rhine-West­phalia

A di­verse des­tin­a­tion

North Rhine-West­phalia has twelve re­gions, each of­fer­ing its own unique at­trac­tions. Some are a para­dise for lov­ers of the great out­doors, with hik­ing, cyc­ling, horse­back rid­ing and wa­ter­s­ports just some of the activ­it­ies on of­fer. Oth­er parts of NRW are more urb­an­ised and really come in­to their own for lov­ers of cul­ture. Each and every re­gion shapes North Rhine-West­phalia in its own unique way and of­fers up plenty of sur­prises for vis­it­ors!
