Murals in Essen (7th)

I looked again and found some more, to make it 70! I just have checked it out; my last post about the murals in Essen was in August 2018. Since then, a lot has happened.

And yes – here they are: the pictures I have taken in Altenessen at Kaiser-Wilhelm-Park. […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

My yesterdays visit at HoF Zollstraße lead to the news of today. I was surprised; somebody has cleaned up Chester Bennington’s memorial wall at Zollstraße.

In the area between Bottroper Straße, Berthold-Beitz-Boulevard, Pferdebahnstraße, Haus-Berge-Straße, Zollstraße a new district with commercial real estates, 1000 flats and a public park with an open watercourse should be established. And as Essen has a number of 50 districts, the new […]
