Essen was mentioned for the first time as early as 851 when Bishop Altfried von Hildesheim founded the famous abbey. The Krupp family moved to Essen in the 16th century and had a very strong influence on the city, which is still noticeable today. At present, Essen has a population of more than 580,000 inhabitants. If the city was formerly dominated by the mining industry, then today it offers great diversity both economically and culturally since it is constantly in a state of change. In 2010, Essen, together with the Ruhr region, was given the title “European Capital of Culture”. Moreover, the city holds the title “European Green Capital”, which was awarded by the European Commission. In 1972, Essen University was founded; since its merger, it has been known as Duisburg-Essen University, one of the ten largest universities in Germany with more than 40,000 students.
