City Overview

Essen is located in the Rhein-Ruhr-Region and, together with Cologne, Dortmund and Düsseldorf, forms the Rhein-Ruhr Metropolitan Region with a population of around 10 million. Essen is home to a multitude of international company headquarters including RWE, Evonik and Thyssen Krupp, and also to the retailers Deichmann, Karstadt and Aldi Nord, making the city an important office location. Essen is also famous for its industrial heritage site Zeche Zollverein, which is an UNESCO world heritage site.

Essen’s retail market is focused on the city center. The major high streets are Limbecker Strasse and Kettwiger Strasse. While Limbecker Strasse focuses on Young Fashion brands, Kettwiger Strasse has a mid-market tendency. In 2010, the Limbecker Platz shopping center with 74,100m² opened in the city center, integrating a former Karstadt department store. Another shopping center is the Rathaus Galerie accessible from Kettwiger Strasse.
