  • The courtyard has strongly suffered from the storm and lost some of the most beautiful trees and avenues, is still a beautiful park and a good rest area in the middle of the city centre.

  • The courtyard is the green lung of Düsseldorf. There is everything what is called in special places, its own history. E.g. the "Napoleon Hill" and the "gate to Kourosh" form a unit. Or the "Golden Bridge" and the "Swan pond" and the "Crown land" and "Riding Allee". Quite a lot of history as you want to pass, or the really enjoy breastfeeding. The storm "Ela" has more than been battered this fantastic Park System 3 years ago, but this has all become much brighter and clearer and has ended for the time being for the first time emerging 'night crime'...

  • 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.

  • 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.
