Grugapark Essen

Adventure, fun & action

Discover one of the most beautiful parks in Europe in the heart of the Ruhr district! 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 animals, with the aviary and historical farm animals, colourful flower beds, and the botanical garden, with its themed gardens and the show plant houses. The park is also home to extensive meadows, a variety of sports areas and playgrounds, the open air art collection, and the historic Grugabahn railway which takes visitors through the park.

We also recommend visiting the Folkwang Museum in Essen.
