Essen Expat Events

Enjoy your Essen Expat Experience

The desk of the Ruhr Area opens its intercultural doors to you, beginning with its attractions such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Zollverein Industrial Complex, one of the most beautiful coal mines in the world,, the traditional celebration of Germany’s Tag der deutschen Einheit, to savoring a dish of roast pork with Knödel. The InterNations network is a place made for the Essen expat and offers insider tips and opportunities to ensure that you can make the most of your life as an expat in Germany. Our members are looking forward to offer their advice and knowledge from experience when you come across one of the many questions about the life as an expatriate in Essen, from ʺAre inland flights or national trains the cheaper option to travel from Munich to Berlin?ʺ to ʺIs an international driver's licence valid in Germany?ʺ
