A great location, we got a lot of information in the visitor center. The gastronomy is open on 7 days and is more of an artist and crew canteen. So cheap, but delicious food. The food is honestly prepared, no finished products.
The tour was great, we did not realize what many different types of events take place there. We will go there more often.

The Jahrhunderthalle was built in 1902 by the Bochum association for the Düsseldorf industrial and trade exhibition in Duisburg and then shipped to Bochum and reused as a blower machine hall for the blast furnaces of the Bochum club. (Free to Wikipedia)
For cyclists, the Jahrhunderthalle as a meeting and orientation point is very interesting, as here popular cycle paths such as the Erzbahntrasse, West Park Park and also meet sometime the RS1.
