Information about Essen

Essen is the fourth largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia after Cologne, Düsseldorf and Dortmund. It is located in the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region in the heart of the Ruhr region. Apartments in Essen are very frequented, especially when the big fairs take place in the region. But many holiday guests also book their temporary holiday homes in Essen, as not only the well-known “Ruhrpott-Romantik” seduces to great holidays, but also the numerous nature reserves provide great excursion destinations. And detours to major cities such as Dortmund, Düsseldorf and Cologne or even to the border area of the Netherlands are certainly possible as day trips. Since Essen spreads over an area of about 210km², we can offer you not only numerous accommodations in the city centre, but also in the many surrounding districts. Have a look at our private holiday apartments in Steele or apartments in Katernberg. Or do you prefer Apartments in Bochum? Whatever you decide, you will see, instead of couchsurfing in Essen you will find private apartments with style in which you can enjoy your valuable leisure time and at the same time discover the interesting surroundings from there.

From the private holiday apartment in Essen on a voyage of discovery

Since 2001, the Zollverein colliery in the north of the city, which you can easily reach from your private holiday home in Essen and which is regarded as a milestone in industrial architecture as well as an anchor point of the “European Route of Industrial Culture”, which presents about 1000 objects, cities and regions in more than 40 European countries, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Borbecker Schlosspark, which was laid out as an English landscape garden, is regarded as one of the oldest parks. – Food: 1000 reasons for a varied holiday.

    Great little place in a quiet neighborhood in Essen.

    Es war alles OK, gerne wieder. Überrascht hat mich die Aussicht vom Balkon. Für das Ruhrgebiet ungewöhnlich ist, dass man sogar über einige Häuser hinweg Wald und Feld gesehen hat. Keine 100 m weiter konnte man einen Spaziergang in richtiger grüner Landschaft machen. Das hat meine grüne Seele doch sehr erfreut. Ich komme gerne wieder.

    After staying with a friend for 3 nights I can highly recommend this studio apartment in Essen. It was neat, well furnished and in an excellent location. Manfred even stocked the fridge with a variety of food and drink!

    Highly recommended!
