Wetter: climbing wall

Climbing enthusiasts visiting the Ruhr region have come to the right place. In addition to climbing walls in all shapes and sizes (including a free-of-charge wall in Duisburg's Landschaftspark Nord), the region has also several climbing parks. There are a number of reasons why we are pointing out the climbing wall in Wetter specifically, including one that is very relevant for students: it is the cheapest climbing wall in Germany! You can climb at 14 different parcours with varying degrees of difficulty, all of which are named after famous mountains resp. peaks. It starts with the easy "Seiser Alm" and goes all the way to the challenging "Nanga Parbat".
