Living in Essen

Visit Essen! The Movie.

Essen - that's the people who live here, the places they love and the togetherness that is as direct as it is warm.

Here you'll find the largest movie theater, the oldest Madonna, the museum of the year, a single-family home with 269 rooms, and a coal mine that's stylish on the inside, green on the outside, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Swimming in the lake and sunbathing on the beach are just as possible here as hiking in green hills, immersing yourself in works of art or experiencing over 1,000 years of history.

And right in the middle, really in the middle of the city: Us!
