Don't miss to pay this attraction a visit. It is amazing how the Krupp family were living in the old days. a lot of parking spots. No restaurant available; just 500 meters by car to the lake.

You can combine a visit of the Villa Hügel and the Baldeney lake. The Villa itself is surrounded by a nice park and exhibits photography and pieces of the family Krupp and the history of Essen around war times. From the park you have a...More
