Find Out More About Essen and What It Offers for Expats

Essen, located in the Ruhrgebiet, dates back to the 9th century. Originally founded as a convent for noblewomen, its cathedral houses priceless art, including the Golden Madonna, the oldest-known artifact of its kind. Formerly renowned for its steel production and coal mining, Essen's economy has been reborn in recent years, employing out-of-work coalminers to build a dam at Lake Baldeney, with a recreational area in the south. Now some of Germany's largest companies have their headquarters in Essen, which is buzzing with cultural centers and tourist attractions.
