Ruhr expressway as a party mile
The Ruhrschnellweg between the Dutch border and Dortmund is one of the busiest motorways in Germany. Notorious for its kilometers of traffic jams, the A40 will become a party mile on 07/18/2010. As part of the events connecting with the Ruhr region as European Capital of Culture in 2010, the section between Duisburg and Dortmund was declared a cycle path and equipped with around 20,000 beer tent sets. Our photographer Stefan Ziese participated in the celebrations.
