Essen is one of the major cities in the Ruhr Metzropolis and Rüttenscheid is the choice of many who search for an eclectic mix of lifestyles when selecting a place of residence.
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, the mix of old and new, down to earth and fashionable, residential and commercial makes this a location of choice for many. Especially the young and the young at heart.
The Rüttenscheider Strasse, lovingly known by locals and unpronounceable by foreigners as the Rü, forms a long main axis.The street offers popular bistros, excellent cuisine and delightful bars, open air market and often flooded by international and national visitors to the impressive trade fairs (Messen) held regularly on the nearby complex. Overflowing with creative people. A gem.
