Villa Huegel - Review
This beautiful mansion is located in Bredeney , that now belonged in the modern city of Essen. It was built by Alfred Krupp and had been the residence of the Krupp family (the famous industrialists) from 1873 to 1945. At present, it house the offices of the Kulturstiftung Ruhr (Ruhr Cultural Foundation). You can visit around the furnished private quarters of the main building that are open for public visits. Sometimes, concerts on special occasions, international art shows are held in these sectors. Check their official website to learn about the schedule of these events.
Also pay a visit to the guesthouse which now has been turned into an exhibition that exhibit historical information of the Krupp family and their company.

Villa Huegel, Essen Reviews
Fascinating history of the contribution of Krupp family to German greatness in Engineering. Should be a protected Unesco site.
The perfect place for having a good walk. Beautifull nature and buildings.
An interesting historical villa with a huge and splendid park around it. I didn't have time for a guided tour, but took quick wander around the grounds which was interesting in itself.
Perfect place on a nice weather day so you can enjoy the park around the villa. The main building is in renovation at the moment so check if work is finished before.
Would have been nice if the display placards were bilingual, in Deutsch and English. Difficult for non-Deutsch speakers to follow.
