Walking Tour Essen-City Nord: A quarter with creative and artistic vibes
Explore City Nord on our culinary tour: Wander through the downtown of Essen and absorb creative vibes. Enjoy interesting and special stores on the shopping streets of City Nord. You will find here variety instead of mainstream, put together in the smallest of spaces. Marvel at imposing galleries, theaters, and museums composing a very unique character.
As a very unpopular part of the city in the past, City Nord is on its way up. Besides the former shopping centers in downtown this quarter builds a new and vivid area between the “Kopstadtplatz” and "Viehofer Platz”. Even if this part of Essen copes with vacancies and a lack of renovation it has got loads of potential. Many cultural institutions, such as the GOP Varieté theatre, attract artists and free thinkers who try to build a new and exciting place here to live.
City Nord with its variety and individuality is waiting for you. The combination of stores, cultural institutions and short distances between all of it creates a special place to be at. This also counts if it comes to the culinary offer in City Nord. You have a great choice ranging from the snack bar round the corner to the exalted restaurant. Get to know the district through its people and food our Culture and Food Tour.
