ESSEN’S HIDDEN GEMS OF THE RUHR

The Ruhr flows like a blue ribbon through delightful scenery filled with hills, fields and forests in the southern part of the city of Essen. And like a string of pearls, the historical towns and medieval half-timbered houses come into sight. Today you would scarcely know that this seemingly unspoilt landscape was once the birthplace of the industrial revolution in Germany. However, the history of most places stretches back many centuries into the past. The best way to discover Essen’s hidden gems is by bicycle over the RuhrtalRadweg (Ruhr Valley Cycle Route).
