Experience Essen

Hardly any other German cities have experienced development like Essen over the course of the centuries: it has been transformed from a Medieval settlement with a monastery for noble ladies into one of the world’s most important centres of the mining industry and then into a modern metropolis where global management, retail and service companies have set up home.

But Essen is much more than that too: Essen is an international trade fair location, an exhibition space for some of the most important artists of our time, a world stage, a cultural centre, a design centre, a party hotspot, sports location, leisure park, one giant green space, which was named the European Green Capital in 2017, and also a fascinating relic of industrial culture.
