Hotels in Essen

As the country's seventh largest city, there's plenty to see and do in Essen. Lying on the Ruhr River in western Germany, the city offers an eclectic mix of cultural, industrial and religious attractions. Combined with its many parks, the popular riverside beach and nearby Lake Baldeney, this unique mix makes Essen one of Germany's top city breaks. The range of Essen hotels means visitors should find it easy to choose something that meets their budget and needs.

Arts and Culture

Essen's Zollverein Coal Mine is a fascinating marker of its industrial history as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Built in the Bauhaus design style, this dramatic icon has been named one of the most beautiful coal mines in the world and is certainly worth a visit.

For the culturally hungry, Essen also has a range of other offerings, including the Folkwang Museum, the Philharmonic concert hall, the Aalto and Grillo Theatres and the Essen Cathedral Treasury – which is home to some of the most important religious artworks in Germany.

Located by Lake Baldeney is the Villa Hügel – the stately ancestral home of the Krupp family. This palatial building lies above the Ruhr valley and is a popular feature of the Industrial Heritage Route.

Outdoor Activities

Just outside the city is the Alpincenter Bottrop. With toboggan runs, paintballing, a beer garden, indoor skydiving and, at 630m, the world's longest indoor alpine ski run, this is a top choice for families and thrill-seekers alike.

Shopping

Limbecker Platz is the largest metropolitan shopping centre in Germany and lies at the entrance to Essen. With over 200 shops, an array of restaurants and local traders, as well as a playground for children, this is a popular destination for the whole family. If you prefer to shop while strolling around the city centre, pedestrianised Kettwiger Straße and Limbecker Straße are the heart of the downtown shopping district.

Restaurants, Cafes and Bars

In summer, the beer gardens on Lake Baldeney and along the Ruhr River are popular destinations. For hungry shoppers there are a large number of restaurants and bars on Kettwiger Straße and Kennedyplatz with plenty of outdoor seating. Away from the city centre, the areas of Rüttenscheid and Essen-Süd both offer plenty of options for dining out. Eigelstein, a Cologne-style restaurant, offers traditional German food in an upmarket beer hall setting. For vegetarians and vegans, Zodiac is a popular choice, serving organic produce. And for the sweet-toothed, the ice-cream shop, mörchens eis on Rüttenscheider Straße, is one of the best in town.
