The Ruhr region is offering holidaymakers a new tourist ticket. The WelcomeCard Ruhr offers free travel by bus and train and free entry to various attractions, including a large number of museums. Users can choose between three areas and periods of validity, and have the option of adapting the ticket to their individual length of journey time and the location of their starting point. Free travel in the area of validity and a large number of free or half-price attractions are available for 25 euros, 35 euros or 45 euros for 24, 48 or 72 hours.
After the Ruhr.Topcard became established over many years as a leisure ticket for locals and daytrippers, Ruhr Tourismus GmbH and the Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr transport association has now created an offer specially designed for tourists with the new WelcomeCard.
