I will definitely book here again. The customer representatives in Gran Canaria were friendly. No fuel rip off when renting through Europcar.

We rented a car at Franfurt Airport through Europcar. The process of getting the car was quick and easy. The price was much lower than booking directly through Europcar.

The rates are similar to that of other websites, however we prefer renting on this website as we can choose which company to hire from ourselves.

Essen is the largest city in the Ruhr industrial area in North Rhine-Westphalia. It has 586,000 inhabitants and is the eighth largest city in the whole Germany. It was founded early in the year 845 ADKr. – And is designated as European Capital of Culture in 2010.

There is hardly any preserved historic buildings in Essen, which is because the city was virtually wiped out during the 2 World War II. A landmark of contemporary art in Essen’s city hall, which is Germany’s highest – a skyscraper that towers 120 meters above street level.

However, there are a few pre-war city sights, including the monumental estate Pieper slightly off center, built in 1873 as a private residence of the famous industrial family Krupp. Today it houses an art museum estate. The district Margarethenhöhe (named after Margarethe Krupp) must be mentioned. It was built in prioden 1909-1920 by the architect Georg Metzendorf – and if, because of its many green areas, often called the “Garden City”. Another special feature of the town is that no building facades are alike.

Of course, the industrial city of Essen cultural relics related to its corporate history. Zeche Zollverein is a shut down – but museums purposes restored mining facility, which today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Airport Essen / Mülheim is about. 8 km southwest of downtown.
