A big city in the “centre of the water” – and the agency “Zimmer im Revier” right in the middle! Duisburg, the fifth largest city in the Ruhr area with almost 500,000 inhabitants, has developed enormously – from a “dusty” workers’ city to an attractive industrial culture and university city.
Its location is particularly characterised by its proximity to the Rhine and Ruhr rivers. Green oases on the banks of the river and numerous parks make the region, which is characterised by the steel and iron industry, an attraction on many different levels. The world’s largest inland port has a decisive influence on the city’s economy and the attractively redesigned inner port invites visitors to visit at any time.

Education & Culture

Duisburg has a lot to offer! Students are happy to be able to learn at the University of Duisburg-Essen. In 2003, the Gerhard Mercator University of Duisburg merged with the University of Essen to form one of the ten largest educational institutions in Germany. Students from 130 nations fill this fusion with life. A significant benefit for the city of Duisburg. Living space is sought-after and scarce. Thus we are pleased, the apartment switching ?room in the district? us very, also students, their member and friends, adequate accommodation alternatives such as cosy single or double rooms or vacation homes of different sizes to offer to be able. Of course, our fitter’s rooms and apartments are also ideally suited to accommodate even large groups of employees, even for longer assignments here on site.

Duisburg is located where the Rhine flows into the Ruhr and, in addition, in the midst of numerous lakes, the city in the centre of the water, proudly bears its name. Economy, industrial culture and nature parks entwine around the lakes and rivers. Since the IE city is imist own, a harbour tour in the world’s largest inland port or water skiing in the inner harbour of Wedau, the interaction of Rhine and Ruhr makes it possible. Various green areas such as the city park in Meiderich, the Biegerpark in Huckingen or the Mattlerbusch hunting ground park, the botanical gardens and above all the Duisburg-Nord Landscape Park, which we would like to introduce to you in more detail, invite you to enjoy some delightful experiences.
In the Duisburg-Nord Landscape Park, in the Meiderich district, industrial heritage and green spaces unite in a special way. This unique combination of industrial relics and nature can be discovered wonderfully by bike. The Traumzeit Festival or the Photo + Adventure trade fair attract thousands of visitors every year. The calendar of events is full and varied and can hardly be surpassed.
Whether it’s a cool vintage car fair, illuminated guided tours of huts with breathtaking views from blast furnace 5, action-packed family days, open-air summer cinema or diving courses in the Gasometer – to name just a small selection – there is something interesting for everyone.

A sporting attraction here is the climbing park operated by the German Alpine Association. In this form and size unique in Germany! Where there used to be a lot of malocht, today you can climb. In the former ore bunker of the Eisen- und Hüttenwerk you can find well developed via ferrata and challenging routes. The Nordpark sector is even partially covered! Swaying suspension bridges at lofty heights in an extraordinary setting make the climbing routes a real adventure for all climbing enthusiasts – even without rugged rock faces! And all this with one thing in particular: safety! The climbing event should be safe, inspiring and healthy. Especially in retrospect, stay in your best memories and encourage you to repeat and recommend it.
Duisburg’s inner harbour has been extensively developed and has now become an entertainment and strolling area. The promenade is attractively designed and invites you to feast and linger. Various platforms with experiment stations made of stainless steel encourage young and old visitors to try it out and have fun. The neighbouring EXPLORADO Museum also offers children and families an unforgettable experience. In the background of the inner harbour promenade there are a wide variety of business enterprises and companies of all kinds in a prime location. Here, too, temporary staff employed externally often need accommodation for fitters close to the construction site. Fortunately, we can also offer rooms and apartments for fitters close to the inner harbour.In addition to a close-knit infrastructure that makes it easy to buy meals of all kinds, it is also invaluable to feel the comfort and sense of home in your own fitter’s apartment in Duisburg.

The dragon boat regatta on the Toeppersee in May of each year is another highlight. On the Heinrich-Hillebrandt-Höhe, the “Tiger & Turtle” work of art provides a breathtaking view. On this unique, walkable roller coaster you can admire the sunset after an eventful day. The highlight of the harbour is certainly the fireworks display “Ruhrort in Flammen”, which is called “Niederrhein in Flammen” every three years.

As the headquarters of the State Sports Association, the German Canoeing Association and the West German Football and Athletics Association, Duisburg is also relevant in the sports sector. The most famous sports club is probably the Spielverein MSV Duisburg, which was founded in 1902 and was one of the founding members of the German Soccer League in 1963.

Logistics & port management

Duisburg has acquired an excellent reputation in the world as an international logistics hub. The world’s largest inland port and Duisburger Hafen AG played a major role in this development. The favorable location on the Rhine and Ruhr has always been a great advantage for this development. Due to the trimodal concept, i.e. best connection of waterways, transport network and railways, the logistics location Duisburg is extremely in demand with international trading partners.
Duisburg is a valuable business location Companies such as Franz Haniel & Cie. GmbH, Grillo-Werke AG, Klöckner & Co. GmbH, König-Brauerei GmbH & Co. KG, Mineralquellen H. Hövelmann GmbH & Co. KG, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH and Xella International GmbH, which operate internationally. In addition, global companies such as Deutsche Bahn AG, Deutsche Post AG, Kühne & Nagel AG, Siemens AG Energy Sector and Targobank AG – to name but a few – have branches in Duisburg. This density of companies requires accommodation for a wide variety of projects, construction sites, trade fairs, further training measures, teaching assignments, new buildings, extensions and conversions and countless other applications. Therefore, our early focus was on affordable and conveniently located assembly rooms and apartments in Duisburg. Especially if you work far away from home for a long time, a family-like accommodation is of great importance. This is an invaluable advantage that our landlords can offer you with their wonderful accommodation for fitters!
It is extremely beneficial that important road and rail traffic junctions come together in Duisburg. Düsseldorf International Airport is only a 20-minute drive from Duisburg and various fitter’s rooms from our portfolio.
Even the airports Weeze in the north, Dortmund in the east and Cologne in the south can be reached in about one hour by car.

For shopping queens and kings, Duisburg also presents itself from a highly attractive side.

After a refreshing shower in our assembly worker apartment in Duisburg, you can easily reach one or the other shopping gallery by public transport or even on foot.
An art tour through Duisburg is an interesting way to get to know this city.

The walkable roller coaster “Tiger & Turtle” situated in Meiderich offers a fantastic panoramic view over the whole Ruhr area. Church lovers also get their money’s worth. Sacral art can be found in many places such as the Liebfrauenkirche, St. Ludgerus, the Schmitthorster Dom, St. Peter & Paul or the Salvatorkirche. The Lehmbruck Museum deserves a special mention in the varied museum landscape. This ultra-modern glass building boasts works of art by its namesake, the artist Wilhelm Lehmbruck, as well as an international, extremely interesting collection of sculptures, paintings and art. The Museum der Deutschen Binnenschifffahrt houses spectacular exhibits and is the largest of its kind in Germany. A historical must for those who know and love shipping.
