A description of the Ruhr Area in North Rhine-Westphalia, named thus because of the meandering river Ruhr, would not be complete without mentioning Essen. After Cologne, Dortmund and Dusseldorf, Essen is the fourth largest city in the area and number nine in Germany. Other important cities of the Rhur-Area like Duisburg and Bochum are not far away either.
Even before Essen became one of the most important centres of the industrial revolution in the 19th century the city was an important provider of metal and weapons from the Middle Ages on.
Especially worth visiting for tourists are the Essen Cathedral and treasury, as well as the UNESCO Cultural Heritage site of the „Zeche Zollverein“ (Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex) and the impressive „Villa Hügel“ (Villa Hill) built by the Krupp-family. Nowadays this representative building is used as library, museum and concert hall. With the help of the accommodation service for Essen, gloveler.com, you will surely find a cheap private room nearby.
While steel production declined steadily since the 1970s, Essen continually increased its scope in cultural areas, founding a university in 1972, expanding the service sector of economy and catering to trade fairs with fairs like SPIEL (Game), YOU (Youth Convention) and Techno-Classica, the world’s largest show of classic cars. In 2010 Essen became the European Capital of Culture on behalf of the whole Ruhr area.
No matter the reason for your visit of Essen – be it on business with one of the trade fairs or a private visit of the cultural highlights – you will surely find comfortable affordable private accommodations which you can book directly at your accommodation service Essen on gloveler.com.
