The best campervans and motorhomes for hire near Essen
Essen is one of the most important cities in the metropolitan region of Rhein-Ruhr. The times of steel, coal and soot are gone for good, but they have not been forgotten: In the Ruhr Museum Essen you may discover the city’s past and its development from the times of the coal and steel industry until today. Meanwhile, Essen is a modern city offering many diverse cultural sites, events, and happenings. The “Unperfekthaus” might be representative of that: artists show their splendid creativity on 4000 m2 and visitors can view this “Künstlerdorf” (village of artists) up close. In contrast to art, culture, and the many events the Ruhr and its natural surroundings offer idyllic opportunities for campervan hire in Essen, relaxing away from the urban hustle and bustle: you may go for a bike ride or a stroll along the river Ruhr, in the Wambach Valley or in the Cologne Forrest.
Get to your motorhome rental in Essen directly via the Autobahn A40, A42 and A52. If you prefer travelling by train: no problem – the main train station in Essen daily hosts more than 100 IC and ICE trains that come from all directions. Unfortunately, scheduled flights or tourist charters do not fly to the airport Essen-Mülheim. However, you may book a flight to the airport of Düsseldorf. It is frequented by numerous carriers such as Lufthansa, Eurowings, TUIfly, Condor or EasyJet. From there you may continue travelling to Essen with the regional or long-distance train in less than 20 minutes.
In theory, you may park with your campervan hire in Essen for up to 14 days anywhere you can also park a car. However, it might be difficult to find a sufficiently large parking space in the centre of the city. The exception is the camper parking space Essen, located nearest to the centre city in the Baedeker Straße. Here you can park all year long for €9 per day.
As an alternative, you will find the Revierpark Nienhausen about a 9 km distance where you can park for €7 per day. Still further outside of the city, there is the campervan car park at the Landhaus Grum for €15 a day or the camper park at the Freizeitpark Aquarell for €11 per day.
