The Ruhr region is a somewhat unusual, seemingly haphazard collection of towns and municipalities. They have been packaged together under one roof and pronounced a metropolis.

Local, state and national politicians, bureaucrats, lobbyists and personalities voice their opinions on the region frequently. Yet most naturally have great difficulty in relinquishing focus on their locality to altruistically benefit the Ruhr Metropolis as a whole.

Meanwhile, real folks, their voters, have been getting on with life in their different local boroughs, quartier or quarters and districts. They have created a fascinating array of neighbourhoods offering exciting places to live, work, play and visit.

The neighbourhood offers great quality of life due to the friendliness of the people living there. Steeped in tradition founded upon its independent beginnings over a century ago. Just a stones throw from the centre of Essen, this a location of choice. Especially the young and the young at heart.
