This region is similar, but not as big as the Northeast Megalopolis:), but also a very important industrial and urban area.



Ruhr Metropolitan Region is European Capital of Culture 2010.


The Ruhr (Ruhr Area, German Ruhrgebiet, colloquial Ruhrpott, Kohlenpott, Pott or Revier) is an urban area in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), Germany. With 4435 km² and a population of some 7.3 million (2008), it is the largest urban agglomeration in Germany. It consists of several large, formerly industrial cities. It is considered part of the larger Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region of more than 12 million people. Since the 19th century, these districts have grown together into a large complex with a vast industrial landscape, inhabited by some 7.3 million people, the fourth largest urban area in Europe after Moscow, London and Paris.

GDP 2007: € 136 billion

They turned a 60-kilometer stretch of highway into a performance art venue Saturday as part of the celebrations for the annual European City of Culture event. Organizers lined one lane of the A40 highway -- one of Germany's busiest -- with 20,000 tables and offered space at them to anyone who wanted to perform. Performances could take any form, the organizers said, as long as they showcased local culture. Audiences were allowed to travel along the other lane by any non-motorized means. The festival centered on the city of Ruhr in western Germany.
