the niu Cobbles

the niu Home

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.
