Since my family visited the Extraschicht every year, we decided to focus on Bochum as the main city since they didn't visit it yet. At first we started at the Ruhr Uni Bochum (Bochum's university), where we visited the arts section and listened to "Shakespeare at the table" where students gave short monologues at your table. Very cool!
Later we enjoyed cocktails while listening to Tolstoi, got some free books and tried local foods from Iran, China and Vietnam...
Our next stop was the Jahrhunderthalle (~ century hall), where we checked out the Westpark and saw the show Urbanatix. The inspiration for the show was "creative machine" and there were Beatboxers, Parcourists, bikers, dancers and other artists giving their best for 1 hour!
Our final stop was the Amphitheatre in Gelsenkirchen with an impressive laser show plus dancers plus an operette singer.
After this show (which ended around 1.30 am) we decided to call it a day and head home. It was a great night and I'm looking forward to seeing all the stuff they organize for next year!
