On water, on land, by foot

Weekend trip

On water, on land, by foot

Day 1: A day at the lake

In the middle of the city you will experience a unique trip in nature. By canoe you will discover Essen's green sides along the Ruhr and Lake Baldeney . There are numerous beer gardens along the route where you can stop for refreshments. After your ‘work’ is done, you can enjoy a cocktail on the beach at Seaside Beach Baldeney or the beach at Haus am See - good lounge music included! Don't forget the time, you don't have to go far and you don't have to leave the water. You can spend the night in the Bauwagenhotel with a view of the beautiful Ruhr - a unique experience in the middle of nature.

Day 2: Villa Hügel meets Retro Bike

After breakfast, we recommend a visit to our "Versailles Palace", although here it is called Villa Hügel and is the largest single-family home in Germany! The former ancestral home of the Krupp family is not only an extremely imposing villa with unique photo motifs inside and out, you can also enjoy a sensational view of the beautiful Lake Baldeney in the incomparable park. From Villa Hügel you can either take the train or a bike to the trendy district of Rüttenscheid to marvel at the retro bikes or to the southern district around Isenbergplatz. With its small boutiques, second-hand shops and good restaurants, there's always something going on there. Just let yourself drift - you won't regret it!
