Essen Germany Culture
The Ruhr area is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you go on a city trip to Germany. As interesting as it may be, I would not call it one of the most beautiful areas in Germany, at least not now.
It is also an important football region, where teams such as Gelsenkirchen, Schalke and Borussia Dortmund are among the most successful in the nation. It is considered one of the greenest cities in Germany and was named European Capital of Culture in 2010. At the same time, the fame of all of them - around the German industrial centre - does not prevent Essen from being the green capital of Europe.
The park is not only a tourist attraction, but also a far-reaching confirmation of Essen, which despite its industrial past is considered one of the greenest cities in Germany.
Essen is also one of the warmest cities in Germany and with an average temperature of only 1.5 degrees Celsius is above the national average.
Essen is one of the top 10 largest German cities in terms of the number of visitors per capita to the European City of Culture. In 1999, it was renamed the European Capital of Culture, and Essen and the entire Ruhr region were named European Capital of Culture in 2010. The Culture 2000 programme is now financed by the European City of Culture programme. German cultural heritage and travelling exhibitions in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and South America.
These events are similar to the European City of Culture, but last shorter and are aimed in particular at Central and Eastern European countries. The title "European Capital of Culture" is used when it means not the city but the entire region. It is possible to obtain further clarifications: What does it mean that Essen, as an "entire region," should be European Capital of Culture from the very beginning?
In fact, representatives of Ruhr 2010 argue that the Essen title can convey the "entire region" and cite the reasons given by the jury in selecting Essan and Görlitz. This ambivalence plays into the hands of the organisation that wants to seize the titles in the name of "Essen and the whole of the R Kuhr region," leaving open the question of whether it is a "European Capital of Culture" or just an image - which "changes - wisely." Rahn 2010 claims that the overall intention was to make the RuhR region "not only" but "as a whole" the European Capital of Culture. The controversy surrounding this transformation, however, has surprised Rahr 2010 members, as "whole regions" means "one of 54 cities" that Essen is part of.
This has been resolved by simplifying the logo so that it contains both "Ruhr Capital of Culture" and "Ruhr Capital of Culture."
Apart from the controversy, the selection of Essen and Görlitz has had a significant impact on the future of the European Capitals of Culture 2010 programme. On 11 March 2006, the Council of the European Union elected the Ruhr Area, represented by the cities of Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, Munich and Cologne, as the European Capitals of Culture 2010, and the official nomination clearly shows that the entire Rahn region is the European Capital of Culture 2010. The history of the European Capitals of Culture, which includes a programme here, was that the members of RuhR 2010 were proudly and repeatedly proclaimed as representatives of their respective regions and countries.
Essen is a city in the Ruhr region, north of Rhineland-Palatinate, and is the home of Essen, which means "food" in German. The city has a colourful array of cuisines to choose from, with some great food and good restaurants to go with it, although I must be honest Esson is more of a city of nutrition than a cultural centre in itself. And of course Munich's most famous Oktoberfest attracts over six million visitors every year.
There are more than enough reasons to spend some time here, and Frankfurt is a great city to explore, with many museums to visit and an exciting nightlife.
If you are planning a longer trip, I would definitely recommend combining it with other cities. Food and cooking are so great that it takes no more than a day to get through all the highlights, and only for three days. After these three days we can't wait to see more of the Ruhr area and hopefully visit other cities like Cologne, Dortmund and Düsseldorf soon.
There is no doubt that Essen is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany and probably the best city in the world. It also acts as a great tourist destination, with great food, great shopping and great people.
Essen was built on coal and steel, but has since moved from the industrial era to trade and culture, attracting both visitors and locals to the city. The city attractions are in the foreground, with a variety of restaurants, shops, hotels, restaurants and hotels as well as a wide range of shops.
