Welcome to the InterNations Expat Community Here in Bochum!

Willkommen to your new home in Bochum. This industrial city in the north-west of Germany has a lot to offer expats, with its temperate climate and lively culture. And with InterNations, you will be able to get in touch with other expats in the region, whose insights and advice will prove invaluable to you as you settle into life in Bochum. They'll be able to steer you towards the best medical facilities, suggest restaurants, and keep you up-to-date on local laws and customs. They can help if you have any language difficulties or are just overwhelmed by your new surroundings.

Curious to explore other communities in Western Europe, e.g. our chapter for Khobar (Eastern Prov.) Expats? Or you might think of stopping by at our Abu Dhabi Expats community on your next weekend trip.

Bochum Expat Events

Among the Rolling Hills of North-Rhine-Westphalia

With good transport links to the cities of Düsseldorf and Essen, Bochum has a lot to offer new expats. For the single expat, there is a thriving nightlife, with many clubs, theaters and restaurants. Local cuisine is traditional German food: meat, vegetables, and, of course, beer. For the expat with a family, there are many good schools (there are 61 primary schools to choose from), and the city is blessed with oak and beech forests to the south, and Bochum Zoo and Botanical Gardens in the center, as well as many other outdoor opportunities. The locals are friendly and always happy to help and the city is safe for visitors and expats alike. As Bochum isn't such a popular tourist destination, it benefits from a low crime rate.

Moving to your new home should be an exciting time, but it can also be a stressful one. You may feel isolated at first, but by connecting with your fellow Bochum expats at InterNations, you will meet like-minded people who share your interests and who will be able to help you settle into life in this lovely city. We regularly hold InterNations Official Events, which can be anything from wine appreciation to business networking, and can help you integrate both personally and professionally. Our Bochum members also organize InterNations Activities which fit in with their varied interests, for example family days, book groups, and hiking and walking tours.
