Shopping City

For centuries one of Germany's major coal and steel centers, Essen offers some of Germany's best shopping, religious sites, and historical atmosphere.
Explore Essen's surroundings by going to Movie Park Germany (in Bottrop), Duisburg (Sechs-Seen-Platte Duisburg & Tiger & Turtle) and Xanten (St. Viktor Dom & LVR-Archaologischer Park Xanten). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen, explore the world behind art at Museum Folkwang, examine the collection at Red Dot Design Museum, and take a stroll around Gasometer Oberhausen.

For maps, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Essen trip planner.

Copenhagen, Denmark to Essen is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
