Essen & Surroundings

Everyone knows the cliches about the Ruhr Region, but none of the prejudices applies to life in the Ruhr Metropolis today. Not only has the area’s river become one of the cleanest in Europe - through the decommissioning and cultural renaissance of numerous old industrial sites, an entire cultural landscape has grown up here that is almost unique. The people of the “Pott” (Ruhr District) are unchanged: honest, reliable, uncomplicated and sincere.
