Essen Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


You will certainly be surprised when you visit the capital of the Ruhr coal basin. We expect an urban landscape, marked by heavy industry, and discover a residential city, with green areas that are pleasant for walking. Converted to other industrial sectors in the post-war era, in particular the electronics industry, the city is worth a detour, particular for a visit to its cathedral built to the same design as the one in Aix-la-Chapelle.
