  • To disconnect a bit. There are squirrels that not have much fear and is close enough. With some stretch in works and in winter which is less beautiful. Yet it is worth a stroll

  • A sizeable park in the old town area of Düsseldorf. Easily walked across in an hour. Currently lots of redevelopment work ongoing. Hopefully will be all done by springtime . 
  • The courtyard is the perfect place to recover from the shopping stress. Who goes north over the Kö, automatically comes into the Park, which extends to the Rhine. A great walk.

  • great old park steeped in History, nice place to stroll around on a fine weather day!
  • Beautiful inner city park, there's always a wide assortment of bids in the pond and in the park. Beautiful area for a run or a walk in the evening as it connects to the Rhein. Big playground area for children as well
  • Not a fan of Libeskind but his building is great. I love the bridge
  • Not the best of places for a rainy day, and not as great as some gardens I've visited, but nice enough any. Lake is nice.
  • Nice and quiet, good for bicycles.
