Take the time for a special experience. Sometimes it helps to take time out for yourself. Or to gather for a bit with family, friends, or business partners in relaxing and pleasant surroundings – with all the amenities one could desire.
Schlosshotel Hugenpoet will make this gathering exceptional, not least of all with its unique interiors. We offer an exclusive hospitality experience for those wishing to place their expectations in good hands.

This splendid former residence of the Baron of Fürstenberg is an elegant refuge for both private and business occasions. Each of our 36 rooms welcomes you with a remarkable ambiance. Individually furnished with a love of detail, each room differs from all the others. But we enchant you not only with our extraordinary rooms. Restaurants, a bar, gala halls, and salons also await you. All partake of the Schlosshotel's magic. Historical elements, inimitable visuals, and our warm hospitality enhance your stay as well.

Schloss Hugenpoet is a hotel with a rich tradition. This moated castle is situated in the midst of the green Ruhr Valley. The cities of Essen and Düsseldorf are just a short distance away.

In the magnificent calm of Hugenpoet's expansive castle gardens, guests find the time to connect with nature and rediscover and reshape their own inner spaces. We craft unforgettable moments and unique experiences that are restful, delightful, and varied.


The Ruhr region is known for its diverse array of leisure offerings, including industrial culture with the Zeche Zollverein UNESCO World Heritage site, the Villa Hügel, the Duisburg Landschaftspark, and the Oberhausen Gasometer. The 240-kilometer Ruhrtal bicycle route connects the Ruhr with the Sauerland in a mutually charged blend of nature and industrial culture. The Aalto performing arts venue combines one of Germany's largest theaters with an internationally renowned concert hall for the Essen Philharmonic Orchestra. Another cultural highlight is the Folkwang Museum and its leading collection of modern art. The Rhine city of Düsseldorf offers exclusive high-end shopping on its splendid Königsallee boulevard

In the 36 individual rooms and suites, exclusive design combined with selected antique pieces of furniture gives a feel-good atmosphere.
