    Myself and my dad decided to take a visit their yesterday. The staff or volunteers was helpful and it’s good to explore to take photography whilst the working on the building is going on. The stain glass windows was amazing and interesting sculpture in my life

    Wonderful collection of cars. Wide range of different types, price points and styles. Definitely worth the visit - especially for the car enthusiast.

    I came here recently to watch my team start their campaign for the 2022/2023 Bundesliga against BVB Dortmund. Arriving by car I was a little apprehensive about where to park. I needn't have worried - I simply followed the "P" signs and found myself being drawn to a multistory car park which I believed to be part of the Trade Fair grounds and was only a stones throw away from the Nordkurve where the away fans were. For 8,00 € parking fee you can't really complain - and I didn't.

    Anyway with more than 81.000 fans congregated in this impressive stadium - and ca. 75.000 of them routing for BVB Dortmund the atmosphere was quite electric. When they all sang "You'll Never Walk Alone" it certainly gave me goose bumps even though the anthem is stolen from Anfield...

    As for the stadium itself, I was pleasantly surprised to see how well everything is set out. The seating is arranged in quite steep terraces which means that you get a good, almost helicopter type of view of the playing field. Where I sat the restrooms were close by as was the drinks/food counter. Both got heavy use during the half time break.

    All in all a very impressive stadium. It's just a pity that my team lost there this time (just!).

    A beautiful boulevard lined with mature trees. Peaceful yet busy and a perfect spot to take in the city.

    Too many times when visiting a famous European church we have taken advantage of free admission and simply wandered through the building, getting some sense of the power of the architecture and artistry but having a minimal look into the history. Not this time. On the advice of a borrowed guide book we purchased (5 euros each) a tour, and boy are we glad we did. Getting that knowledge about the way the church was constructed ( over many years and different architectural styles) and the personalities involved over the years gave us a much greater appreciation for the historical significant of what we were seeing-. As other reviewers have noted, the tours get an up close and personal look at Charlemagne’s Sarcophagus, the throne room and other fascinating details in the church. And, our tour guide was both informative and entertaining. My advice? Take the tour. Take the tour. Take the tour.

    An excellent museum about the history of FRG - I learned so much in a period of three hours. A bit out of town but some good captions and audio files in English - most of the signs are in German only which can restrict the knowledge that you can get. Well worth a visit

    UNESCO site with plenty for everyone. Be sure to take a guided tour and then wander at your leisure. Plenty for kids, a park, soccer golf and spots for food and drink. There are many options for tours and I recommend taking more than one in order to get a better understanding of why the mine is being preserved.

    this is a nice distraction on a sunny day to walk the full length between the bridges that mark its limits. I expected some type of flea market but there were just bars and restaurants. the view from these bars is great as you see the river and its passing traffic along with the bridges and the tower. the prices in the bar reflect the location but still not too expensive. might be a different place when it rains but the bars seemed well covered.

    Best market in Europe. The market is huge, although not quite as massive and well attended as it was pre-Covid, but it’s rebounded well, considering.

    Seems to have been reorganized. When I last visited before the pandemic, there was no particular order. Now it appears that meats, fish, bakers, cheese etc are arranged in groups.

    When we went (mid July) there was an excellent selection of garden plants and cut flowers. We got a couple of amazing, lush dendrobium orchids, absolutely smothered in blooms, for 8.90€ each. OMG. I shudder to thing what those would have cost back home.

    My town in the USA has a nice weekend market, but this one is truly world class. I could spend hours walking around and looking.

    Prices were reasonable, if you buy fruit, use it immediately, because it’s already at its peak.

    Well reconstructed steel mill site and interesting boulder track in the old concretete construction. Poor directions signs so ask for a map at the Tourist Office in Duisburg. Uninterested information staff at the Park.

    It is an excellent museum, very well documented and with very interesting objects, videos and pictures. It is just too much, so you have to be selective in what you want to see. The art selection I found less impressive, but overall it was a great experience.

    Special, normally you cannot visit a big tank like this.
    Entering the tank it is not possible to grab the complete picture, once in the elevator you really see the grandness of the tank.
    The view from the roof is aalso spectecular.

    This park is worth a visit. For sports, walking, rowing. The Japanese garden is very beautiful.

    Paid parking in the neighborhood.

    I was finally able to return to Essen, Germany for an annual conference that was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID. I deliberately chose the hotel I did because it was right next to the amazingyy peaceful garden of Eden. When I was here in 2019, my wife had to remain in the states to care for her ailing father. He died right before I arrived in Essen. I was so torn up that I walked through this park in an absolute downpour for several hours trying to come to grips with not being able to be there for my wife. Life is that way. I was now able to walk through this park on a warm, sunny day with a different perspective even though we are all still facing COVID. This is literally one of the most beautiful places to simply enjoy the wonderful creations of flora and fauna. This time they had a wonderful exhibit called Fearless Women. Spend time with nature and you will leave here in a peaceful, easy feeling...if I can quote the Eagles.
