From ... to ....
I wanna know, how to reach Hotel "Etap" in Essen from the hauptbahnhof, without a taxi. I wanna use the public transport.
Re: From ... to ....
By bus. The address of the hotel is: Lichtbogen 1, Essen (if not, then the following is unnecessary, so please reply to confirm or work it out by using the link at the bottom). The hotel is outside Essen in a commercial area (Gewerbepark).
From Hauptbahnhof 2 possibilities:
Take Niederflurbus 166 to Dellwig Bahnhof and get out at Essen Gewerbepark M1, then walk 4 minutes.
Take U-Bahn U11 to Essen Karlsplatz, get out at Altenesse Bahnhof, take Niederflurbus 140 to Borbeck Bahnhof, get out at Essen Friedrich-Lange-Str and walk 12 minutes to Lichtbogen 1.
If you need any other schedules, here is the website (in English):

Travel Tips for Essen
I just realized and thought...
I just realized and thought about it what you can do when you woke up damn early in the morning, like 5 or 6 am and you don't wanna stay in bed or in the hotel or where you are in the moment. What can you do so early in Essen. Hmm.....I don't know. You can go jogging through one of the many parks here in Essen. On Saturdays and Sundays you can visit a flea market, buy rolls for a nice breakfast or just try to sleep again. There is nothing special in the morning in Essen. Or you take some pictures of the must see activitys in the morninglight.
Rüttenscheider Straße, Rüttenscheider Stern and surroundings PARTY! PARTY! PARTY! *?*
If Essen has something like a concentrated nightlife at all, I would search it in Rüttenscheid. There you have several restaurants and pubs, the unique 'Galerie Cinema' where you can watch OVs every night (except on Mondays), you have the Girardet House, where a nice Irish Pub (Fritzpatrick's) is and you might get a real parking problem...

Take a stroll in the district...
Take a stroll in the district Margarethenhöhe. It's a beautiful place - must be wonderful to live there!How to get there: Just take the tube line U17 towards Margarethenhöhe.
Check out pix in the travelogue!
Margarethe Krupp (of the famous Krupp family, possessors of the Villa Hügel) founded the Margarethenhöhe in 1906 to give affordable lodgings to workers, who couldn't build their own houses.Quite nice of her and she really spared no efforts - the surroundings are just beautiful (woods and the Gruga Park), the houses are of various styles and all of them are very pretty to look at, especially in autumn, when the wine leaves become fiery red! The whole thing, in other words every single house, was equipped with bath tubs (first time in Germany!) and they planned the road networks like in a medieval town, which makes the district very homey.
"The 6th biggest city in Germany"
In Essen are some of the most powerful DAX-companies of Germany located. ThyssenKrupp as to name will be soon back from Dusseldorf. The biggest Energy (crime) company RWE (Rheinisch Westfälische Energie) is also located here, what means there are a lot of very rich people in the area, but the locals are indeed poorer than average in Germany. Nice south, poor northern parts in the city is also for Bochum, Mülheim, Duisburg and Dortmund characteristic.
