    The marked path between August-Thyssen-Str and Ruhrhöhenweg no longer exists!

    The address is: August-Thyssen-Straße 1A, 45219 Essen.
    There is a small parking lot opposite the entrance area, from there it is about 10 minutes on foot. But of course it is much nicer to cycle or hike through the hilly forest landscape.

    There are many castles in the Ruhr Valley - one of them is Schloss Landsberg near Essen-Kettwig. It was built in 1276 and bought in 1903 by the great industrialist August Thyssen.
    If you cross the Ruhrtal coming from Essen and keep to the right on the August-Thyssen-Strasse towards Mülheim, a stone gate suddenly appears on the left-hand side of the road. Opposite there is enough parking space. The Schloss Landsberg itself is located in a quiet wooded area above the road - and actually already in Ratinger area.
    The Castle of August Thyssen - In 1276 it was built by Count Adolph V. von Berg to fortify the Ruhr Passage. In 1903, the industrial magnate August Thyssen acquired it. This lived here until his death in 1926. The divorced, living alone Thyssen used the house not only for recreation, but also for business meetings. Many social and private events of the industrialist took place here. Even today, the castle is owned by the Thyssen Krupp Group. After the war, Schloss Landsberg was initially a children's home, then it became a Protestant leisure and meeting place. The castle-like new building is now used as a training center. Unfortunately, the castle is not open to the visitor - but you can stroll in the gardens.
