    There are plenty of parking space around the city of Essen...

    Or you can park inside the shopping mall parking lot...

    It is very easy to access, so no worry.

    Just decide which part of the city you want to explore and go from there.

    If you find it is too tedious to go by car, then by all mean just go there by train and then take their subway or just explore the city on you feet.

    Favorite thing: A very nice city to explore, got so many street shops, as well as a few big shopping malls to choose from..

    Many restaurants and cafes to choose from, spoil for choice...

    Fondest memory: The best of visiting the old town Kettwig, where we can admire some old buildings that has been preserved for history of the town.

    We enjoyed a good walk there, exploring the small old town by foot.

    This old town situated next to a river.

    We had enjoyed a real Italian gelato and coffee there after exploring this beautiful little old town.

    A theater,in the modern shopping street of Essen.. In the heart of Essen... The historical building of the old city Kettwig... Alstadt Kettwig (Old city)
