Hattingen is full of experiences
Experience Hattingen on the Ruhr. Link arms with us and we will take you on a voyage of discovery through Hattingen, the old town of the Metropole Ruhr.
Stroll through the winding alleys of our historic, picturesque old town with its lovingly restored half-timbered houses and architectural monuments.Cycle through the romantic Ruhr Valley along the Ruhr Valley Cycle Path, one of the most exciting river cycle routes in Germany. Marvel at the impressive industrial heritage at the LWL Museum für Eisen und Stahl Henrichshütte: here, the oldest blast furnace in the area rises 55 metres into the air. Enjoy fantastic views from our three mighty medieval castles, Isenburg, Blankenstein and Wasserburg Haus Kemnade. Hike through Elfringhauser Schweiz (Elfringhaus Switzerland) and come to rest: in the green hilly country of the Metropole Ruhr with its quiet stream valleys, ancient cottages and romantic country inns.
