Travel Tips for Essen

Essen Kettwig

by sabsi

Kettwig is a part of Essen which is located between Essen and Düsseldorf. Went here for rowing parties a few years ago and apart from the great parties I was surprised how beautiful this place is. Perfect for a walk along the Ruhr or for rollerblading...

Visit the Münster Essen (Essen Cathedral)

by BillNJ

Located in the heart of the pedestrian zone, the Münster Essen (Essen Cathedral) is a lovely example of classical Gothic architecture. More impressive than the Cathedral itself, though, is the Cathedral Treasury which houses one of Europe's most valuable collections of church treasures. Its best known treasure is the the Golden Madonna, the oldest full-relief Madonna statue in the West, which dates back to the year 980 A.D.

The route of the coal

by Nemorino

After the coal had been brought up out of the mines it was transported around the plant by these giant conveyor belts.

Five huge "washing" machines with swiftly moving water separated the lighter coal from the heavier pieces of rock, but a lot of the sorting work still had to be done by hand. This was usually done by 14 to 17 year old boys, since by law they were too young to be sent down into the mines.

Second photo: These long sorting machines separated the coal from any remaining pieces of rock, and sorted the chunks of coal into different sizes

Third photo: Machinery in the Zollverein.

Fourth photo: One of the workshops in the coal plant. Some of the tools are really large.

Be enlightened by the Essener...

by Bagillbaer

Be enlightened by the Essener Lichtwochen (=weeks of light).

Around Christmas, the city is decorated with umpty millions of lights, either hanging in the trees or being arranged to form stars, archs and a series of pictures that run every year under a different motto.
The Limbecker street looks just great on Christmas time, because it's roofed all over by archs of light!


Again, I created a little travelogue about it.

Industrial Beauty and green areas

by sabsi


When I asked people about Essen they all replied "Oh, it's so ugly". Then I asked "have you been there?" and all said "No".

I have been to Essen several times, mostly for rowing regattas but also for a walk along the Ruhr or to see the Zollverein Pit or the Villa Huegel.

Essen is so green, it's unbelieveable! So don't believe the people who tell you it's ugly....

Glück Auf!

"VT Meeting 23 November 2003"
