Discover new stories from #visitNRW!

Get to know the special stories of exceptional people from North Rhine-Westphalia. Because they are what makes #DeinNRW so unique. We have already visited lots of personalities from the state on your behalf, including a Köbes (Cologne waiter), a fashion designer and a real ranger.

The story of Jörg Albrecht from the Münsterland was recently added: The graduate hipster swapped the capital city for his home state. He gives us an insight into his ideas and visions – because he wants to turn the famous Burg Hülshoff castle in Havixbeck into a modern location for the cultural scene.

Curious? Come on a tour of discovery with us right now!
