The German Mining Museum of Bochum isone of the world’s most complex museums of its kind. The Art Museum houses an impressive collection of German Expressionism, Surrealism, and Middle and East European Avant-Garde works of art.
Bochum’s City Hall houses the fountain of beauty and the fountain of happiness. In front of the edifice,a giant bell evokes thehistory of steel-molding in the city. The bell was built in 1876 for the world exhibition that took place in Paris.
The oldest church in Bochum is dedicated to St Peter and Paul. In the place of the current church, there was a wooden chapel that was replaced in the 11th century with a stone one. However, in 1517 the stone church burned down along with many other buildings in Bochum, during a devastating fire. It was later rebuilt in the Neo-Gothic style, but the original Romanic chancel was kept.
