Different to all other "usual" living spaces - rather exceptional life-style with all its pro's & con's, with all its visible and hidden industrial inheritage spread all over the place. The area this appartment was built on was part of the large coal-mine plant "Friedrich-der Große" (1874 - 1978). Thus, if you stay here you literally step on centuries-old history!
Besides that there are all kind of other places spread around that are worth visiting. Cities like Bochum, Dortmund, Essen & Duisburg offer a large variety of sightseeing and entertainment which has to be checked individually. Many supermarkets and the small city centre are within walking distance.
