Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord, Duisburg

(420 reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord, once an old, abandoned coal and steel production plant, is now a public park. Woven together by walkways and waterways that are former railway and sewer systems, the ironworks now hosts cultural and corporate functions. You can delve into an old gasometer that now serves as Europe's biggest manmade diving center. Walk through alpine climbing gardens that have been created in ore storage bunkers, or venture on the high ropes course that was once a casting house. For views of the meadows and waterways of the park, climb the extinguished blast furnace--now a viewing tower. Spend some time in the middle of the former steel mill, which has been made into a piazza, or rent a bike to explore the site. Guided tours are available, or you can explore on your own. Children may enjoy the huge tube slide going through two ore bunkers, and the open hall for skating and mountain biking.

  • The park is quite interesting, many things to see and discover though some practical comments have to be made. Firstly there is no general way of information provision. We found some boards with German and English and others just in German. Furthermore the information wasn't always visible because of stickers and graffiti on it. The information center at last was closed because of a break of the employees between 13:30 and 14:15. Even though I understand everyone need a break it is rather strange this center is not open during - in my idea - one of the busiest moments
  • It was bigger than I thought so take your time when you go here. You can climb some of the old systems/installations (stairs). It is a beautiful merge of industrial and nature. Just take a look at the website for more info. Don't forget your tripod when urbexing...
  • Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord is a park on a former coal and steel production plant that is typical for the Ruhr region. The park reinvents its old buildings and integrates them into beautiful natural landscapes. The fascination of this park is the harmonious combination of past and present as well as industrialization and nature. You can walk through and on buildings, gardens and walls for hours and discover numerous great spots for taking outstanding pictures. If you are visiting Western Germany, this is a place not to miss out on.
  • A really cool place for a picnic or grilling. Try to climb up the stairs of the factory and see Duisburg from above. Also, the walls of the factory are used for wall climbing which is absolutely fascinating
  • This place is amazing really impressive and the views from the top is amazing open 24/7 although they do turn all.the lights off at 1am so if you are climbing to the top take a torch.
