  • Nice relaxing Park. Full of birds of all kinds (even the beautiful Black Swans are present!). Nice to sit on a bench in the Sun and relax a little bit.

  • Nice park and escape from the busy hustle and bustle of Dusseldorf, located just up from the Old Town, nice place for a walk and some peace and quiet 
  • 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

  • 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.
