Essen-Rüttenscheid is Essen’s hot spot, if not one of the most popular districts in the entire Ruhr area. Rüttenscheid is known for being diverse, modern and stylish. Learn more about Essen’s trendy area here!

At the heart of Rüttenscheid is the “Rü”, as locals call it – short for Rüttenscheider Straße. This busy main street is always buzzing with excitement. A large variety of stores, boutiques, galleries, bars, cafés, restaurants and clubs are waiting to be discovered by you. The urban vibes give Rüttenscheid its own flair between alternative and high-end, trendy and conservative. Young artists, students and party goers are part of this dynamic neighborhood as much as business people, enterpreneurs, managers and the “old money” crowd.

Rüttenscheid has a lot to offer in terms of work-life balance: The 65 hectare large Grugapark is perfect for outdoor sports or strolls after work. Admire the numerous skulptures and botanical garden within this vast greenery! If you enjoy culture and arts, don’t miss the Museum Folkwang or Essen’s Philharmony.

Another must-see in Rüttenscheid is its famous market. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, visitors can peruse the various stands of delicatessen, pastries, wines and more.

Rüttenscheid has excellent travel connections for public transport as well as Autobahn 52 if you travel by car. The trade fair, Universitätsklinikum or one of the many large companies in Essen (e.g. ThyssenKrupp, RWE, evonik) can be easily reached from your new Rüttenscheid home.
