  • A nice place to come early morning for a stroll or to relax on a bench. It's a nice way to change pace and to look at nature instead of buildings. Some nice monuments are also around.  more »
  • The storm ELA was a more a large destroyer and the conversion to the former Schadow Rhine railway station. Still ugly wounds in Düsseldorf's central square testifies to track work, construction sites and wind throw. Let us be optimistic and hope that it not only again is the beautiful green belt after completion of Kö-Bogen 2. That the trees to be replaced will need decades hurts all lovers of this classically landscaped facility.

  • 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.
