Multiculti in Essen

Urban, colorful and easy-going: The niu Cobbles represents the best of our multicultural identity here in the Ruhr-district metropolitan area. Smack in the middle of Essen no less. You will get to meet originals from the “Revier” (a term for a mining area, as the locals call it) here – have a drink at our own „Trinkhalle“ bar and get the inside scoop of where to go in the city. Learn about laid-back Essen with and through us, decompress your lifestyle and find the rhythm of this city in our Living-Lobby or one of our Essen-colored rooms. Your life - your choice.

Good to know: Cobbles basically means “a piece of coal” – a perfect fit for the former „heart of coal“ here in Germany’s coal-miners region.

Design & Art

What would the niu be without design and art? Well, it surely wouldn’t be the niu, because we have chosen art as a central design element. Each design of our houses stands for its own story, inspired by the neighborhood, culture and history of the city. For the art design, we turn to emerging, young artists* who find a platform for their creativity with us. With great, individual pictures and murals they show what "street art" can be and bring our motto to life with humor and attention to details.

Modern day spirit meets industrial tradition

At the heart of the Ruhr-metropolis Essen you can find our authentic the niu Cobbles – a piece of real industrial heritage. The niu Cobbles will grant you a nostalgic view of the warmhearted city and it will certainly win you over with its perfect symbiosis of modern day comforts, industrial design, street art, and intricate details. Come in and be surprised.
