Since 1995 the Association for Town Marketing of Wetter ("Stadtmarketing für 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).



Directly around the castle ruins of Wetter is the "Freiheit" Wetter – a medieval town center with restored half-timbered houses. Worth mentioning is the five-gables-corner ("Fünf-Giebel-Eck"), an ensemble consisting of several houses.

On the side of the Harkortsee is the Harkorthaus, where Friedrich Harkort, industrial pioneer and great son of the city, lived in the middle of the 19th century. In addition to the five-gabled corner, the Reformed Church and the viewing platform of the castle ruins, which offers a wonderful view of the Harkortsee, are sure to be special attractions.
