For centuries one of Germany's major coal and steel centers, Essen offers some of Germany's best shopping, religious sites, and historical atmosphere. Despite its industrial background, many people consider this one of Germany's most nature-oriented cities. The city is home to several univeristies, including Folkwang University and the University of Duisburg-Essen, which inject it with plenty of energy. One of the most diverse areas in the Ruhr area, where the combination of technological industries and old German aesthetic has helped it move beyond its World War II devastation.
