Take a stroll through the historic old town, which is well worth seeing. There are many destinations in the old Hanseatic town of Schwerte an der Ruhr! For example, the Gothic hall church of St.Viktor with its art and cultural treasures, the Ruhr Valley Museum in the old town hall or the anchor points of the Route of Industrial Culture.

Enjoy the wooded surroundings and the beautiful Ruhr valley with its cycle and hiking paths or take a canoe tour on the Ruhr.

Special Schwerter highlights in our calendar of events are the cabaret weeks and the World Theatre of the Street as well as the Pannekaukenfest, organised annually by citizens for citizens on a voluntary basis. Interesting events throughout the year are offered by the nationally renowned Rohrmeisterei cultural centre with its refined gastronomy in the stylishly preserved ambience of a listed industrial building.
