  • Near the old town this is a good park that is relaxing, clean and friendly. Nice for a stroll amongst the greenery in the city  more »
  • I liked the park. It is partially interdicted for construction, but since I like gardens, I had a pleasure walk going through this area.  more »
  • Beautiful park to visit and chill out on a bench and go brunch. Better to visit during a sunny day. You can take nice photos there.  more »

  • 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
