Hofgarten, spanning 28 hectares (68 acres), is the oldest public park in Germany and is called the green lung of Düsseldorf. Set off on a relaxing walk and admire the park's nature and formal design. Discover picturesque lakes, centuries-old trees, historic monuments, artistic sculptures, and lots of waterfowl. Look for the fairytale figures at the Märchenbrunnen fountain. You'll find plenty of areas to have a picnic or play sports. Children will enjoy either of the two playgrounds.

  • A greenway connecting the Rhine with the old city centre , plenty of shade and rest areas to chillax in the summer heat.  more »
  • This beautiful park is located in Düsseldorf. It is the oldest park in this city. Many historical monuments and sculptures decorating the park. It is an oasis of peace in this vibrant city. Well worth the effort.

  • 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.
