Essen, cultural capital of Europe 2010!

You will love visiting the Ruhr Valley, its rough and charming character.

Essen is a name that used to be “the town” for German industry and the Krupp family, now ThyssenKrupp. But if you expecting a post-Industrial cityscape – you may be surprised.

After most of the industry has gone Essen was left with modern towers and parks, while a UNESCO-status industrial facility has been lovingly cleaned up as a monument.

There are big concert halls placed in repurposed factories, and the Zollverein Mining Complex is both simple and elegant for its Bauhaus architecture. You can get to know the Krupps a little better by going on a trip to see the huge family villa, and take excursions to the authentic medieval villages in Essen’s suburbs.

Kids will love to visit the Movie Park with all its attractions near by.

Plenty of restaurants and bars around town makes this place perfect for a short or long stay in our ASTORIA CITY HOTEL.
