Here, the Lower Rhine and the Ruhr area meet. Neukirchen and Vluyn are two districts that together have a lot to offer. For sports enthusiasts, there are the Himmelstreppe stairs onto the Halde Norddeutschland former slag heap, the open-air pool and numerous cycle and hiking paths. For culture fans, there are themed guided tours and tours of the town, as well as a colourful programme of cultural events. For day trips, there are historic attractions such as the Bomersheim water palace or the Alte Mühle in der Dong mill – while the timber-frame Hallenhaus building on the former slag heap towers above.
