Nice Hattingen

Hattingen - a nice city to hiking linger shopping

Now also with its own website:

Hattingen is nice - and we want to show that to everyone. Committed and creative, collaborative and with a lot of passion, we regularly organise small and large nice actions within the city and invite you to be part of it.

But why actually nice? Isn't nice boring?

We believe that the small image damage caused by the word nett in den letzten Jahren erlitten hat, im Grunde nur unseren Hang zu einem höher, schneller, weiter enttarnt. Offenbar reicht es uns nicht mehr, freundlich, liebenswert und charmant zu sein. Wir wollen mehr – mehr Wow, mehr Show, mehr große Geste. Dabei sind es genau die kleinen sozialen Eigenschaften des Wörtchens nett, die Menschen zusammenbringen und gemeinsame Ideen wachsen lassen. Wir finden daher, nett sollte dringend wieder salonfähig werden.

This is exactly why we confidently profess to be nice. With our collective actions we show that nett is still modern and desirable. Come by and let our nice Saturdays or our avenue of walking trees.

Let us be creative.
Let us be active together.
Let us be relaxed and not hectic.
Let's make it nice!

Nice Saturdays

On nice Saturdays, things get really nice in Hattingen! Traders and restaurateurs regularly come up with little surprises and treats for customers and guests. These can be small gifts, but also creative activities to take part in. You can find out who is taking part by looking at our "Nice here" shop window stickers, which you should look out for when walking through the town. It's worth it!

Travelling tree avenue

In late summer, our Wanderbaumallee with twelve mobile trees toured through Hattingen and offered citizens and visitors a cosy place to meet and linger. Built by Ideenschmiede-Hattingen e.V. and financed by local businesses, the twelve trees were a seat and handcart in one and could be moved with little muscle power. In this way, the trees could be moved quickly and easily to wherever you like to be.

In the meantime, the trees have been planted and have thus found a permanent location.
