  • It is a beautiful House. Once you get an impression to this dynasty. It's worth a visit.

  • Rather by chance have we come to visit the Villa hills and the beautiful park and were perhaps also therefore extremely excited! The House together with the art is just very impressive as the vastness of the whole estate. We had not any idea that food really really lovely beautiful corners has!

  • Very well maintained large beautiful park. In the House you feel really small and irrelevant, but not everything is accessible and very much alike. It's good for a round, but no longer. The exhibition about the Krupp family/company is not the exhibits a few exceptions very interesting, rather. Who makes entry just a fast lap for the €5 I wouldn't advise on this which. Who but takes much time for a walk and look at everything, the can't miss this exceptional property.

  • Rich with history, beautiful mansion and amazing grounds.
  • Has visited the villa, its a massive listed building worth visiting especially by every conservative soul that believes in preservation. A popular site in Essen. A visit will convince you. Enjoy the site and the history behind it. August 2015 was my third visit to the site in three years.
  • Just amazing! beautiful castle and wonderful garden!
  • Nice house, very nice position on the hill and nice garden. Just too humide area.
  • One of the must visited place when you are in Essen. Magnificent interior design of the villa.
