How to find us

Guides tours

Tours given by third parties without an official permit are forbidden.

The Villa Hügel was the residence of the Krupp family. You may visit the house and park during opening hours and participate in our group tours. Our guides take you on a journey through the multi-layered history of the Krupps to give you an overview – or, in the case of our special theme tours, a deeper look – at both the family and the enterprise. Our tours of the park point out unusual features, exotic treasures and examples of local beauty in the expansive, hill-covered grounds.

Would you like to book a private group tour? Please reserve in advance and specify your language preference. We offer tours in German, English, French and Dutch. Or consult our calendar to see if a tour is available on your preferred date. We recommend booking well in advance.

Of course, we also offer public guided tours every Sunday starting at 11.00 am, 12.30 pm, and 2.00 pm. There is no pre-registration: visitors can purchase tickets on site.
