  • In the North of Düsseldorf, the Imperial Palace is located in the tranquil Kaiserswerth. Not only an interesting historical background is available here but on certain days during the summer also events such as musicals or big band performances.

  • 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. ☺
  • 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.
  • Nice view
  • Super easy to get to from the city and has a lot of old world charm to offer.
  • 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!
