An extensive communication programme accompanies the exhibition on weekends, Ascension Day and Corpus Christi during the entire period. During the Irrlichter-Tours, our trained art educators set out together with the visitors to explore the Ruhr Ding. Walking and bike tours link the different venues and allow visitors to discover the various districts in which they are located. They invite visitors to see the art projects in a new light, to get to know new districts and rediscover familiar ones, and to discuss what they have seen.
You can bring your own bike or rent one. Bike rental stations will be located near the train stations in Mülheim an der Ruhr and Witten. Of course, you can also explore the exhibition on your own. On site you will meet our competent colleagues from our art education team. Information on how to prepare for the exhibition can be found online, on site at our info points in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Essen-Steele und Witten, and in the exhibition guide, which is available in advance.
The outreach programme Irrlichter-Tours is supported by E.ON Stiftung.
Participation in the Irrlichter tours is free of charge. Tickets can be booked in advance online. Spontaneous participation in the tours is also possible, depending on availability. Places are limited, so please cancel booked tickets in good time if you are unable to attend in order to free up places for other visitors. The Irrlichter tours can be visited with your own bike. Bikes can also be hired from our partner Revierrad at the starting points. In order to plan your visit optimally, we recommend booking the tours and rental bikes in advance, as the contingent may vary depending on the capacity on site.
