There were 8 of us and we all loved our main meal. I had veal and it was very tender, I don't believe I ever had veal that tender, the sauce was very good! My dessert was Trilogy of Plum, it was perfect. Not too sweet...

This building is a show of how the privileged lived. The house has a good history of the Krupp family but unfortunately it is all in German which is not useful for outside visitors. It would be great to see a little English for the tourists. Not much can be seen of the house but the rooms that are available... More

The park is a vast and perfectly groomed affair which will keep you in awe throughout. The villa itself is fascinating but cannot be toured in full. Parts of the house are open to the general public and house an extremely interesting exhibit on the Krupp family while adding a good perspective on important aspects of German history. Other parts...

Don't be fooled by the scarcity of furniture inside. The outside beauty compensates for that. On a cold winter day, you might get fog and beautiful light to accompany you on your walk around the park.

The Essen castle - the mansion of the Krupp family, now a museum, is located beautifully above lake Baldeney in a fine park. Definitely the home of a family who shaped industry (at least...) for decades. While it offers vast amounts of space and 19th century splendor, it tells the history of the powerful Krupp family. Not the kind of... More

The former villa of the Krupp dynasty is impressive to see both from the inside and outside. There are changing exhibitions in the house and the park around the villa is perfect for some calm, nice promenades. You can also catch some amazing views over Essen from the viewpoint, which is located close by the building.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The home of the steel magnates Krupp resembles one of these late 19 century operas or national theatres: A richly decorated giant shoe-box, but not a king's palace. This first impression is confirmed inside. The spaces are enormous, but the interior with its omnipresent wooden panelling breathes a spirit of grand bourgeoisie rather than nobility. Size is the dominant stylistic... More
