Coming Soon…

Belle NRW is a constant work in progress. According to German tourism sites there are over 900 museums alone in the NRW. We’re working to get as many as we can on the official listing.

I thought it would be fun for people to get some “behind the scenes” action. In this section, I’ve listed the sites that I currently have on my radar to add to the official listing. This could be a useful reference if you’re looking to travel somewhere and need more options.

This is a bare-bones list. No links to the attractions, some of the places may not be the official names… or spelled correctly, or maybe I have the same place listed twice under different names. This will all be triple checked before it goes on to the official listing site.

Please pardon our dust as we work to get these places – and more – on our official site.

Since this is a work in progress, this list will change frequently. Sites will be added to the official listing. Sites will be removed from here. I’ll add new places here.

Something missing from our lists you think we should know about? Tell me in the comments or via the contact form or email me at ann@bellenrw.com.

Thank you so much for your patience.
