Krupp Villa Hügel
Saturday, July 07, 2001; posted by Paris

Our next stop was to the massive grounds and mansion of the Krupp family. This family made its fortune in the steel manufacturing business and had wealth and influence comparable to the Carnegies in the US. Below are some images from inside the mansion and the surrounding grounds.

A view across the grounds. The Krupps collected trees from around the world and planted them on their estate.
