Whether you’re a veteran Germanophile or new to the beauty of Deutschland, travelling to neighbouring cities and towns will help you to get to know more about German life and the history of this beautiful region.

Tech Scene

While it may still have a ways to go to rival the Berlin startup scene, NRW is now home to 20% of Germany’s startups. And with tech companies come tech events, of which the Rhine-Ruhr region is certainly not lacking! In fact Cologne (a city once famous for men’s perfume) now hosts Europe’s largest invitation-only tech conference.

So with hundreds of tech events throughout the calendar year, how do you pick the most innovative and inspirational, and avoid the sea of blazers and buzzwords? Well, we have you covered! These are the best tech events in NRW as picked by our software developers!
