'Elisabeth' in Essen

'Elisabeth – The True Story of Sissi' celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2012 and is making its second appearance at the Colosseum Theatre in Essen. The touching story of Empress Elisabeth of Austria will once again play out before captivated audiences on 8 and 9 February 2012.

There are of course plenty of other reasons to visit this city in the Ruhr region. Both the Zollverein mine and city centre, home to Burgplatz square, provide a taste of what Essen has to offer.
