  • Homosexuality in the family is hidden away in the historical explanation. I believe that the role of "gunsmith" of Germany aware what underexposed and minimized. The best-known product is their "Big Bertha"? This does not prevent a visit more than fascinating is the vision of the Krupps on understanding the world.

  • For more than twenty years, I want to see this industry family monument. It is very interesting to understand what must why do successful Industielle - whatever - for compromise or enter. The special exhibition with the letters to the Krupp BB´s and Berthold Beitz were revealing.

  • Villa hills, the "largest" detached House of in Germany. The residence of the Krupp of family with the magnificent park. Should be visited in any case, if you are into food or environment. The guides are recommended.

  • There are many old every day utensils displayed and the original inventory is still nice looking and in a good condition. I suggest a visit to any tourist, especially from abroad.
  • I really liked it. They have a nice collection of tapestry of Raphael Cartoons showing scenes from Gospels and Apostles. I liked it overall with the guide telling us the story of the family line. It is a must see.
  • 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.
  • A place from recent history full of beauty, love and over all, hard work...
  • Historic place at the lake
