The surrounding park of the villa it is beautiful. The villa was in revamp so... not so good for a day visit. For young kinds it is not the right place to go.

Villa Hügel is certainly nicer and more impressive than a number of palaces, including monumental ones, such as the Residenz in Munich, seen as a matter of taste in decoration. Impressive scenery, excellent taste, innovative technology, explain the breathtaking success of the Krupp family.
