The Ruhr area – a changing industrial region.

Before it rose to become the largest city in the Ruhr area, Essen enjoyed a thriving medieval era, which has left its mark and imprint even today and lends the city a nostalgic touch.

Essen and its surroundings offer endless possibilities for recreational activities. The historic monuments of industrial heritage, such as Zeche Zollverein, a World Heritage Site, offer fascinating insights into bygone times.

The green surroundings, Lake Baldeney and Gruga Park invite you to take a stroll and recover from the hustle and bustle of the city.

From musicals, museum visits, to GOP Varieté – all within easy reach.

You can obtain information on all current events at our reception desk.
