Villa Hügel and Park reopen for visitors on 16 June
June 10, 2020
After three months of closure, visitors can now visit the Hügelpark and Villa Hügel again from 16 June. The Main House will be opened first. Due to the space situation, the Krupp Historical Exhibition in the Small House will remain closed for the time being.
To protect both visitors and employees, the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation has taken comprehensive hygiene and clearance measures: A compulsory wearing of masks in the building, limiting the number of visitors both in the Main House and in the park, a fixed course to avoid crowds and changed opening hours are a contribution to counteracting the spread of the corona virus. Group visits and guided tours are also not possible for the time being.
For three months Villa Hügel and the park were closed due to the difficult to assess developments around the corona virus. The Krupp Foundation has used the closing time for intensive restoration and rehabilitation measures: Visitors can now admire, for example, the six-part tapestry series from the 17th century on the first floor of the Main House, which now shines in bright colours again after extensive cleaning and conservation.
To compensate annual ticket holders for the three-month closure, all annual tickets purchased before 16 June 2020 remain valid until the end of June 2021.
Changed opening hours: Villa Hügel (Main House) – Tuesdays to Sundays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. / park – Tuesdays to Sundays 9.30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Closed on Mondays.
