architect christoph ingenhovens rwe-tower certainly became one of essen's landmarks as it is located in the very centre of the city.

We didn't go in, but it looks very impressive from the outside. I've heard it's very interesting. Maybe we'll give it a go if we're in Essen again.

Date of experience: August 2015

This tower is very iconic to Essen. You always see it when you pass through the train station. Its round appearance gives Essen a North American taste. The tower can be seen from outside only.

Date of experience: July 2015

A nice and tall building for city of Essen. located just across the street from Aalto Theater. Shame that you can't really go up in that building unless you're authorized because it's just an ordinary office building.

Date of experience: June 2015

I loved that it's so tall. It looks like it must be hundreds of meters high! Not only that it also has the RWE headquarters inside!

Date of experience: April 2014
