Grugapark Essen

Adventure, fun & action

Discover one of the most beautiful parks in Europe in the heart of the Ruhr area! Whether it is families, those with a taste for adventure, culture vultures or those who like the great outdoors – the Grugapark offers something for everyone. The top highlights include the free flight aviary, the house of bees, which is home to several bee colonies, the colourful flower beds, a botanical garden and the historic farm. The park also features extensive meadows, space for sports, play areas, as well as the historic Grugabahn railway which takes visitors through the park.

We also recommend visiting the Folkwang Museum in Essen.
