Since 1995 the Association for Town Marketing of Wetter ("Stadtmarketing f├╝r Wetter e.V.") works for the presentation of the location Wetter and the systematic prestige advertising as well as for improving the attractiveness of the town of Wetter (Ruhr) for citizens of Wetter (Ruhr), citizens of the surrounding area as well as resident and interested companies. The association wants to contribute by ideological, material and / or financial support for appropriate events in cultural, sporting, economic, social and / or environmental fields. The association can also achieve these purposes by implementing appropriate procedures (eg. planning and guidance documents, publications and related services).



Come with us on a discovery trip to our 5 museums!

Did you already know that we have five museums in our beautiful town of Wetter (Ruhr)? We would like to introduce you to the museums of ABUS, BLEISTAHL, BURG, Henriette Davidis and the local homeland association at the First Museum Day of Wetter, and give you the opportunity to get to know our museums.

On this day, all the museums of Wetter will be opened for you, and some guided tours and partly open visits are offered. What is special is that some museums are not normally accessible to the public. So be our guest, come in and be amazed at what is to be discovered in the museums of Wetter.

Important notes:

For the guided tours we ask for your registration in our office – by e-mail or by phone.

In addition, the citizens' bus will travel to the individual museums in a round trip, to enable non-mobile guests to visit.

Due to different constructional situations, we unfortunately do not offer wheelchair access.
