Beautiful house

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

I live locally and have visited twice. First as a tourist and later to hear a public concert. The main villa seems a bit of a let down. Only the principal grandiose parts are open to the public, so you don't get any impression of how the Krupp family lived in what seems an ostentatious barn of a building! Lots... More

After reading Manchester's The Arms of Krupp, I became interested in the castle on the hill. Not only was the front of the castle off-limits (some type of construction) but the major halls (both levels) constituted the extent of the "museum." The small house, previously used for guests, was a testimony to the steel barons of the Krupp family--things I... More

We were at the Baldeneysee and passed by. Although the villa is in renovation the beautiful park and the colossal building are impressive. Also the children liked it and wanted to understand why one family needed such huge mansion. What I found interesting was the candid display of pictures showing how Krupp von Bohlen fell from grace (Nuernberg trial) and... More

The Krupp family villa, or rather a small castle, is a lavishly decorated place with two floors. Wooden panels are used extensively in the large rooms. The layout is a bit strange since there is one smaller building connected to the main one. That contains an exhibition of the family and the Krupp industry history. The wartime head of the... More

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...
