European Green CapitalThe city of Essen in the Ruhr valley has long been far greater than the sum of its parts, and today it is also making a name for itself as the European Green Capital.

Pack your bags and immerse yourself in a city and its ideas as you discover just why the European Commission has named Essen the European Green Capital for 2017.


Essen’s successful transformation from coal and steel heartland to the greenest city in North Rhine-Westphalia sets an example for other European cities undergoing structural change. People follow a holistic approach to life here and are already putting into practice future-focused concepts and solutions for a greener, more community-minded and simply more liveable city – you can’t help but feel inspired!


In its capacity as the European Green Capital, Essen is bringing people together to share their knowledge and learn from one another.


All year round there will be exhibitions, tours and special events exploring environmental themes, such as the Night of Industrial Culture, Breakfast in the Park, and geological and botanical walks.


And if all that leaves you feeling thirsty, then look no further than the nearest tap. The city’s drinking water is the cleanest in Germany.
