    The Ruhrort harbor was founded in 1716 (300-jahre.de) and expanded over the centuries. Today there are museum ships, but the harbor is still active, as part of the largest inland port in Europe or even the world.

    From the Schifferbörse, harbor cruises of the Weiße Flotte and the Ruhrort Personenschifffahrt (hafenrundfahrt.nrw and hafenrundfahrt-duisburg.de) start.

    There is always something going on at the wharf - the view of ships, harbor and Rhine is worthwhile.

    The Schifferbörse is the heart of the Ruhrort harbor. The present building was built in 1952, after the old Schifferbörse was destroyed in 1944. Here, from 1901 freight trades were negotiated and the boatmen had a firm point of contact in the harbor. Before, the orders were completed in the surrounding pubs ... Even today, some shipping companies and shipping companies have their seat in the Schifferbörse.

    Events take place on the Gustav-Sander-Platz in front of the Schifferbörse, for example at the Ruhrort Hafenfest. From the Steiger Schifferbörse harbor tours start (hafenrundfahrt.nrw and hafenrundfahrt-duisburg.de).

    Schimanski location
    In »Under Brothers« Thanner and Schimanski discuss with colleagues from the "Police Call 110" in the "Schifferbörse" in Ruhrort. In the parking lot, Thanners Volvo suffers a color stop.
    In "Friends" Schimmi beats in the parking lot of the "Schifferbörse" - at the entrance to the film "Music School Duisburg" is - an Observator BMW on the hood. Later, the two take the stairs in the parking lot direction Vincke Canal.
