The town of Wattenscheid
counts about 100.000 inhabitants and is being situated between
Essen, Gelsenkirchen and Bochum. The town couldn´t
still stand its annexion to Bochum in 1975.
But there was nearly so much resticance against the coumal
reform than in Wattenscheid.
The old city hall of Wattenscheid is to be seen in the mirror
of a modern facade.
