And now let´s
visit Recklinghausen. Recklinghausen is the county town
of the rural district with the same name.
Recklinghausen is a very old town with a history about 1.000
years. The town has got about 123.000 inhabitants and is
making the connection between the Muenster - country and
the ruhr - district. But even coal mining does play a roll
in Recklinghausen still today. Recklinghausen also always
stood for cultural interests. The Ruhrfestspiele of Recklinghausen
(Festivals of the Ruhr) were founded after the Second World
war. Coal miners distributed coals to heat the theater.
