Our hotel is located within walking distance of well-known sights: Essen Cathedral with its legendary treasury, the archaeologically significant castle square, the famous glockenspiel and the old market church are just a few of them. The Grillo theatre – Essen’s main stage venue – and the Baedekerhaus are also well worth a visit.

Capital of Culture, mines and shaft towers define the charm of Essen

Essen embodies the contrast between the mining and heavy industries, on the one hand, and culture, modernity and nature, on the other like no other city. Today, the city is considered the vibrant heart of the Ruhr area. Visitors flock to Essen to experience its cultural diversity, industrial heritage and green leisure areas.

The history of the city of Essen is inextricably linked to the Krupp dynasty: now the largest business in Europe, the company known as ThyssenKrupp today has shaped the city and the lives of the inhabitants like no other employer. Essen, once the largest mining city in Europe, is full of fascinating stories about mines, shaft towers and the people linked to them.

The most important symbol of the city, Zeche Zollverein, now hosts the Ruhr Museum, which will grant you unforgettable insights into the culture of this part of the world. The Museum Folkwang, one of Germany's most significant art museums, and the Aalto Music Theatre, are within easy reach of our hotel – and most certainly worth the visit.
