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.

Visitor Centre / RUHR.Infolounge

The Pumpenhaus at the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum in the Westpark is the first place to go for visitors. In addition to the catering offerings, you will also find the modern RUHR.INFOLOUNGE here, which provides you with local products, typical Ruhr-area gift items and comprehensive information material.

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. From here, guided tours start to explore the areas around and underneath the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, plus it’s an ideal starting point to check out the surrounding area.

  • Opening times
    At the moment the Infolounge is only open on spacial days. This applies, for example, to the dates when guided tours are offered.

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".
