In the heart of the Ruhr area: Discover Essen

Essen is considered the "heart of the Ruhr" and is a city full of surprises with a lot of charm and a wide range of art and culture. During World War II 90% of the city center had been destroyed. However, historic monuments are still the Burgplatz with St. John's Church, the cathedral with its cathedral treasury, the Bishop's Palace, the Old Synagogue and the Old Catholic Peace Church. For those interested in culture a visit to the Museum Folkwang which one of the most beautiful art museums in the Ruhr area is recommended. Marvel at paintings, sculptures and photographs from over 2,000 years of art history. Admission is free.

An impressive testimony to Essen's history as a mining town and UNESCO World Heritage Site is the Zollverein coal mine - an active coal mine until 1986, which is now a museum of industrial culture. Particularly exciting are the guided tours through the interior of the mine during which you travel underground in a historic elevator.

The 65-hectares Grugapark south of the city center is ideal for a walk. The focal point is the artfully designed botanical garden. Even further south prestigiously situated above Lake Baldeney is Villa Hügel, the monumental residence of the Krupp family. The magnificent building with 296 rooms contains a museum. Many original rooms as well as the surrounding park can be visited. No matter if city trip or business trip: After an eventful day in Essen your temporary home awaits you in the hotels of NOVUM Hospitality. We say "Welcome to Essen!"

sightseeing in Essen

The UNESCO World Heritage Zollverein Coal Mine is one of the most famous sights in the city of Essen. The former coal mine or "Eiffel Tower of the Ruhr" was the largest coal mine in the world at your time and active from 1851 to 1986. Today it is an impressive industrial monument and an important part of Essen's history. For music enthusiasts, we recommend a visit to the Philharmonie. This is known above all for its excellent acoustics and first-class orchestral and musical performances. Those who want to escape the city life should make a trip to Lake Baldeney - a large lake that runs through Essen. Here there are many opportunities for recreational activities such as swimming, boating, cycling and hiking. The Botanical Garden in Grugapark allows you the ideal setting for a leisurely stroll. Discover there a remarkable selection of different plants and flowers from all over the world. Art enthusiasts will get their money's worth at the Folskwang Museum: The museum houses an impressive collection of works from different eras, such as Expressionism, Impressionism and Modernism. Also, a visit to the Old Synagogue should not be missed during your visit to Essen: The historic synagogue not only serves as a museum, but is also a memorial to the Jewish community.
