The City of Essen

Essen has undergone an enormous development over the centuries: from a medieval settlement with a monastery for the ladies of the high nobility to one of the world´s most important centers of the coal and steel industry to a modern metropolis in which globally active companies from the fields of administration, health, trade and services have found their home.

Essen really offers exciting contrasts:
Industrial culture at the UNESCO World Heritage Zollverein.
High culture at the Museum Folkwang, the Philharmonie, the Aalto theatre and of course the Villa Hügel, former residence of the Krupp family.
Huge recreation areas as the Lake Baldeney, the Ruhr river and several hiking trails.
Essen is one of the greenest cities in Germany!
