  • We were here in January 2017, and wish we had more time to spend here. We had not realised there was so much there! We only managed to rush through the museum of garden history in an hour, before doin...  more »
  • Beautiful park complex, which it applies on the occasion of a long walk with the family or to roam but also alone. The week over week, especially in the autumn and winter time, a walk is the best rest often in solitude. The Castle Park is both to see nature reserve as well as a historical monument: means an einmalge combination of relaxation and getting to know a unique piece of art. It is worth every season of the year and in any weather.

  • A good place for running, hiking and outdoor entertainment, you can also find lots of flower in autumn, or have a coffee outside. Love this place.
  • The palace is really beautiful, there was a tour but it was only German, the garden is really nice too.
  • nice place to do a sunny day picnic but bit further out.
  • Cute villa. Big park around.
  • A very poor experience for the international traveller. You can only go around the main house as part of an official tour which was only available in german. An english 1 side A4 information sheet was available of very very poor quality. It was badly photocopied and gave virtually no information about what was of interest in the rooms. No english audio available (which is a very easy thing to provide and available in most european cities for their major tourist highlights). If Dusseldorf expects to attract the international weekend tourists it must do a lot better. The palace is beautiful - pity the tour was so poor.
