Duisburg

3.6
Landmarks · Parks · Zoos
A major center of the steel industry in Germany’s Ruhr region, Duisburg is also a major center of higher education, the performing arts, and sports. Though mainly regarded as a working-class city for much of its recent history, Duisburg in fact boasts a colorful cultural scene and is home to a large number of immigrants from around the world. Nearly wiped out during the Second World War, the steel industry persevered and continues to provide much of the lifeblood of the city even today. Hosting one of Germany’s largest universities, Duisburg’s nightlife is vibrant thanks to its large student population. Despite the decline of industry in Germany since the 1950s, Duisburg today still serves as a powerhouse, both culturally and economically, of the region and the nation as a whole. Take a look at our Germany trip itinerary maker app to refine the details of your trip to Duisburg.
