The houses and grounds of the Thyssen Krupp family are well worth a visit, excellently maintained, very very impressive buildings and good staff who were always willing to answer questions you may have. Very worthwhile visit!

I had the pleasure to visit the villa Hugel after a long day in a meeting room. The guide was very good, telling the whole story about both the villa as well as the Krupp family's ups and downs.

The main house is beautiful from the outside and when you go inside the rooms are impressive in size and magnificent, the wooden floors are a work of art. But........... There is absolutely no explanation about any of the rooms on show, nobody to ask and no guidebook. There were some hard covered books on a desk at the entrance,... More

The biulding is nice, the view from the gardens beautiful on a good weather day. On its own it is nothing spectacular, but worth a visit, if one is staying several days in Essen. An interesting option to visit the place is during a concert (one can park inside and the performances were bis dato good).

My recent visit here proved interesting. The property is impressive and the displays tell an interesting story about the Krupp family. In my case, as German is not a very strong language for me, the fact that all the information was only in German took a bit away from the visit as it was often hard to understand the complete...

Enjoy visiting this house with an interesting history. A family heritage worth seeing and also the lake nearby is really scenic. You can reach here by tram.

The Krupp family home is set in a stunning park next to the beautiful Baldenayee See. The building itself is wonderful from the outside.

This maybe one of the best houses in Essen. It's big and has some really fancy door knobs. The Krupp family sure knew how to feather their own beds! A great example of German industrialists showing how to spend money. Contrast it with a trip to Kartenberg to see some of the workers' homes and get a real sense of... More

I live in Essen and I though why not visit sights nearby. You pay a small fee of 5€ and you get to see the main house, the guest house and you can have a long stroll on the grounds. Villa Huegel is a big manor but you can only visit certain parts. It's a pity we can't see more... More
