  • Appears surrounded by trees on one side and the Rhine River on the other, ancient compound tucked into a neighborhood just outside Dusseldorf really nice. Are not talking fasti ne super castles, but perhaps a demonstration of a personality like that of Barbarossa little known and perhaps not well understood and explained. Beautiful beautiful stylish too the path surrounding local along the Rhine with the many barges that pass and make it all very special.

  • There is much to see and do in Dusseldorf, so a nice stroll along the banks of the Rhine is a good option. If they are in the North, cycling is the best applied for; and, at a rest stop in the Rico neighborhood of Kaiserwerth, going to hit with these beautiful Roman ruins.

  • Beautiful! The ruin is small and will not take more than 1 hour. Next you may like to explore the neighbouring area. It has got a good countryside and town around for a walk. ☺
  • Great place to access things before the hour long trip to the ruin.
  • Nice ruins, but I can't deny I was a bit disappointed. The ruins are just from one building only, so there's not really much to see. It's a nice area to have a walk and stop by for a coffee, though.
  • I love the castle ruins! There are many fun castle chambers and stairs with different color stones making up the castle walls. Lots of great picture opportunities and a great restaurant nearby!
  • Super easy to get to from the city and has a lot of old world charm to offer.
