    A large park with varied views where you can walk a few hours/best. Nice corners and is places in the Sun and shade. A piece of green in the city with many birds and some other animals, we have even seen a squirrel.

  • I consider this park as lungs of Dusseldorf. Get off from public transport, cross the park and you are almost to the the old town. But before entering Altstadt or the old town enjoy the lush green space with meadows & formal flowerbeds.
  • Central and good for a walk. Not silence but not very crowded.
  • Beautiful park with loads of wildlife (different breeds of ducks, geese, swans, etc). Enough place to wander alone even when it's crowded.
  • Super chillable in good weather!
  • Beautiful park right in the heart of the shopping district a must visit for anyone visiting Dusseldorf

Where to stay in Dusseldorf

The Old City, Altstadt, is the center of the action and offers a number of hotels and guesthouses. For quiet evenings and a view of the Old City consider the Oberkassel/Niederkassel area on the other side of the Rhine river. There is inexpensive accommodation in the Unterbilk area near the university, along with a collection of bars, restaurants, and cafes.
