  • Is nice for a stroll, the ruins but were blocked, perhaps due to high water. In the environment, it is also very nice with the Church and the old village core.

  • Is a castle ruin early story appears in the Rhine plain version. Small like a Fort. If you go on Sunday, park like grounds in permanently. I wonder what!? ️ it. Until the fortress town from the U-Bahn (tram run on the ground, so it was good) atmosphere is pretty good.

  • The castle ruins of the Kaiserpfalz are on the banks of the river Rhine. Amazingly old ruins from the 10th century. The site itself is not accessible beyond summer months, but it is worth visiting yea...  more »

  • The ruins make for beautiful storybook settings with the Rhine as background. Public lavatory here is surprisingly (thankfully) clean and bright. Kaiserswerth town adjacent is lovely, too.
  • Nice having a walk in the area, along the river. Free parking for two hour.
  • A nice ruin just out of Dusseldorf. Nothing extraordinary but nice for a walk away from the hectic city.
  • It's a lovely location to take a stroll at and get some riverside air. You're surrounded by beautiful remains and have a nice lookout over the river.
  • I really like the location it's right on the river surrounded by a nice town and lovely railway. I highly recommend it for a walk or bike ride.
