From here you have a good view of Villa Hügel.
The Villa Hügel, located in a scenic location on the Ruhr heights above the Baldeneysee, was planned by the industrial pioneer Alfred Krupp himself and was built between 1870 and 1873. In addition to being the private residence of the Krupp family, the villa was also intended to represent the Krupp company. Emperors, kings, heads of government and politicians from many nations were guests here. Despite all the entrepreneurial will to represent that the building embodies, Alfred Krupp was less concerned with architectural aesthetics than with the highest level of comfort and functionality.
