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 castle with knights and kings, but a fine piece of history of this industrial region.
