The history is interesting, but there are many other historical places in germany. So, i wouldn't pay a visit to this place a second time.

This is a small development of several hundred homes but they are so beautifully laid out and preserved it is a joy walk among them. There is an Edeka and a cafe in the village centre but sadly little information for your visit, but then...More

Outside from Essen's center there is the beautiful settlement that was build in different in stages for workers by their employer. It is like a little village with shops, school, hotel, restaurants, etc. Very green and the houses are very well maintained.

It is quite a nice place to visit and see some interesting architecture left to the city by the Krupp family. Lots of greenery and adjacent to the Mühlbachtal. The christmas market here is quite nice, just for the scenary.

Well, Saltaire or Pullman or Bournville it isn't! But Margarethenhohe is interesting enough to merit a 20- or 30-minute ramble to get the idea of the Krupp worker housing project. Eerily empty! No services. But it's where lots of people presumably want to live, for...More

This area is named after Margarethe Krupp who built housing for workers at the Krupp factories . It's a bit like the game suburbs you see in some UK cities - designed and built with a human dimension.

It is a pleasant enough suburb of Essen but hardly a tourist attraction! Maybe interesting for students of social architecture and early 20th century social history, but it's really only a version of : Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes made of ticky tacky,...More

This neighborhood was built by the Krupp company for its employees about a century ago. In comparison to common worker accommodations at the time, the appartments (many of them small houses) were quite luxurious. The architect at the time (Metzendorf) got high acclaim for the...More
