"The Villa Hügel, built by Alfred Krupp in the years 1870 to 1873, served as the residence and representation of the company for the industrial family Krupp until 1945. The large house was once the family's main residential building. With its 269 rooms and 8100 square meters of usable space, surrounded by one 28 hectare park, the Villa Hügel is more than just a company residence - it is a symbol of the industrialization of Germany. Today the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen and Halbach Foundation owns the entire property. Large art exhibitions take place regularly in the Großer Haus The house informs exhibitions about the history of the family and the Krupp company. The representative park invites you to take a walk and linger. "
