This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Bottrop.

Bottrop was first mentioned in the eleventh century and was a small town in the Middle Ages. It was pronounced a town only in the twentieth century and today, it has just over a hundred thousand inhabitants. It is a nice, small German city in North Rhine-Westphalia, which is well connected to the major cities in the region such as Essen, Dortmund, Düsseldorf, and Cologne. In fact, there is not much to see and do in Bottrop, as it was always an industrial place and if you expect numerous monuments or good nightlife, Bottrop is just not the place. It is representative for the average German cities, which face challenges in the twenty-first century.

Bottrop is one of the few cities in the Ruhr area that still has an active mine. It is still a very industrial city with a lot of companies operating here. There are not too many interesting sights to visit, but you can go to the Tetraeder, a three-sided pyramidal tower with free walk-lookout in Bottrop-Batenbrock; the Square Museum in the city garden of Bottrop; the first local history museum with works of Josef Albers, who was born in Bottrop; the Alpine Center, the longest indoor ski slope in the world, started by one of the best skiers in the alpine skiing history, Marc Girardelli; and many churches.

Bottrop is a relatively small city and not a tourist destination, so logically, there are not so many options for hostels in Bottrop as most travelers stay for a few days. However, you still have a few Bottrop hostels with good German quality and moderate prices for German standards. One problem is that Bottrop hostels are not located in the city center or near the train station, but the city has very good public transportation and it will be easy for you to find a hostel in Bottrop.
