Mining in the Ruhr. From collieries to culture.

Mining in the Ruhr. From collieries to culture.

This was once the beating heart of German industry. The Ruhr valley and its people were forged by the hammering steelworks, the smoking chimneys and the vast collieries. What remains now are mighty monuments of industry where people go to enjoy cultural events and have fun. The ultimate example of industrial heritage in the Ruhr is the Zollverein mine in Essen, which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. This former colliery and coking plant is now a centre for the arts and creative industries with a focus on design and architecture. It is also a major stop on the European Route of Industrial Heritage.

Where better to go than the GOP Variety Theatre Essen if you feel like getting away from the daily stresses of life for a few hours and treating yourself to a whole evening of fun, cuisine and live entertainment in one of the finest auditoriums in North Rhine-Westphalia? With its shows and rich variety of dining options, the theatre has achieved cult status – not only among locals, but also much further afield.

The GOP Variety Theatre's aim is as simple as it is ambitious: to give you an unforgettable evening. To make good on this, the theatre treated itself – and its audiences – to a renovation in 2006. The building itself was totally refurbished, given a contemporary makeover and equipped with the very latest in stage technology. Clear shapes and structures were broken up by opulent decorations and highlighted with coloured lighting. The different seating levels in the auditorium are now much more prominent, with the rows cascading upwards and outwards from the stage, enabling up to 400 audience members to have an unobstructed view wherever they are seated. These changes have made the GOP Variety Theatre in the city of Essen, the European Capital of Culture in 2010, an exceptional venue for events. Its auditorium, restaurant and bar area provide a perfect mix of infotainment, delicious food and drink and amazing shows. State-of-the-art conference technology, high-end cuisine and the best of variety entertainment make the GOP a premium setting for successful events.
