For visitors

GuestRoom. Jahrhunderthalle Bochum.

Where future meets tradition. This has long been a hallmark of the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, and it’s one of the main reasons that the former gas power station of the Bochumer Verein has become one of the most extraordinary festival theaters in Europe. It is a power plant after all: For culture, business and entertainment. Whether international acts, popular consumer fairs or exclusive presentations: You can find simply everything here. The hall generates a feel-good atmosphere - despite its size. And it constantly changes its face without losing its profile. A place cannot be more contradictory. But that's what makes it special. And this is especially what turns every event here into an unforgettable experience.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Try our Century Gold [Jahrhundert-Gold] honey, which industrious bees have collected and produced on the grounds of the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum and in the Westpark.

Catering

You can find a weekly overview of our menu here (in German).

The artists' canteen in the Pumpenhaus at the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum invites you to linger within its industrial charm. It is an ideal location for lunch or a cup of aromatic coffee and a piece of cake.

If the weather is good, you can enjoy the scenery outside under the water tower or with a view of the adjacent Westpark. Our chef de cuisine looks forward to surprising you with our daily alternating dishes for lunch. We also pay close attention to serve you a seasonal menu.

Recreational opportunities

The centre of the Ruhr area, deep in the west. Consider the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, which is part of the Route of Industrial Culture, a starting point and destination for  exploring the city centre west, such as an excursion to the approx. 75 hectar Westpark  linked to the former mine railway track (Erzbahntrasse).

The Jahrhunderthalle Bochum is also only a stone's throw away from the Schauspielhaus Bochum theater, the German Mining Museum, and the Anneliese Brost Music Forum. Diversity and enjoyment, closely intertwined. That’s Bochum. It therefore comes as no surprise that such a broad cultural spectrum can be found around the Jahrhunderthalle. Where once mining towers used to extend high into the sky, the Jahrhunderthalle now shines as a "lighthouse".

Guided Tours

Discover things others pass by without even noticing. See things that remain unseen by many eyes. The guided tours in the Westpark and in the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum reveal interesting facts, and bizarre, entertaining, and in the true sense of the word, remarkable bits of information.

The contents of the tours are always based on the corresponding interests of the specific group.  All tours can also be given in English. Groups should be no larger than 20 participants.

Please find more information about our tours here.

Bike rental / RevierRad

Rediscover the Ruhr Area - with a bike from RevierRad. One of the 27 bicycle rental stations is located at the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, directly opposite the water tower.

During the summer months you can rent one of many different models and accessories at the colourfully painted shipping container. Start your tour here, or end an eventful day with a cup of coffee and a piece of cake at the Pumpenhaus.

You can find further information on bike rentals here.
