A city trip full of activities

Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia, is primarily famous for its exclusive shopping facilities on “Königsallee” and for its lively old town, in which around 250 restaurants, pubs and breweries invite visitors to the “longest bar in the world”. Thanks to the connection via the U77, you can reach the old town quickly and easily from the H2 Hotel Düsseldorf Seestern. You can trace the historical charm of the old town in the St. Lambertus church or at “Burgplatz”.

Schlossturm at the Rhine

At the square directly on the Rhine stands the old “Schlossturm”, which today houses the Maritime Museum. The “Radschlägerbrunnen” fountain and the “Stadterhebungsmonument” of Bert Gerresheim, erected for the 700th anniversary of Düsseldorf at the end of “Josef-Wimmer-Gasse”. The birthplace of the poet Heinrich Heine is also worth a visit. Today it houses a bookstore and a literature café, where readings are regularly held. For those interested in art, a visit to the “Museum Kunstpalast”, the “Kunsthalle Düsseldorf” or the “Kunstsammlung NRW” is recommended.

Düsseldorf is famous for its parks and gardens and rightly bears the epithet “Gartenstadt” (Garden City). For walks and bicycle tours, the green band along the Rhine from the H2 Hotel Düsseldorf Seestern crosses the city from north to south and connects various parks. The oldest park in the city is the “Hofgarten”, which is still a popular meeting place in the city centre with its pubs and leisure facilities. The “Rheinpark Golzheim”, which was designed in 1906 and rebuilt and expanded in the 1920s, stretches along the banks of the river.

For garden lovers, a visit to the botanical garden at the “Himmelgeister Rheinbogen” is also worthwhile. Founded in 1973, it is home to around 6,000 different species, some of them in the impressive dome greenhouse. Anyone who has a little time should also visit other castles and gardens in and around Düsseldorf, such as “Schloss Jägerhof” at “Hofgarten” with the Goethe Museum, “Schloss Dyck” with its enchanting landscape garden or “Burg Friedestrom” in the Dormagen district of Zons, whose idyllic old town is surrounded by fortifications from the 14th century.

A lovely pastime is also a stroll around Carlsplatz, where the weekly market with its fortified stalls attracts visitors to small shops. A visit to the Esprit Arena is an exciting excursion for football fans. The home stadium of Fortuna Düsseldorf football club is also the venue for numerous concerts, sporting events and shows. During a guided tour you will gain exciting insights into the VIP and backstage areas or the players’ changing rooms.

A popular activity with children is also a trip to the “Aquazoo Löbbecke Museum”. A zoo and natural history museum in one, the “Aquazoo” in the North Park is one of Düsseldorf’s most popular museums and displays aquatic life and geological exhibits. Stay overnight comfortably at the H2 Hotel Düsseldorf Seestern for a reasonable price and look forward to a city trip full of activities!

"Kaiserpfalz Kaiserswerth"

Probably the oldest building in the city area is the ruin of the imperial palace in Kaiserswerth. The origins of the castle, built by Emperor Barbarossa in the 12th century, go back to the year 700. The western front of the palace, facing the Rhine, is still 50 metres wide and 14 metres high. In the neighbouring Romanesque-Gothic basilica, the remains of the monk Suitbertus, the founder of the original monastery, are kept in a precious golden reliquary.
 

"Kunstsammlung NRW"

The “Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen” is divided into three locations: the K20, the K21 and the “Schmela-Haus”. In this characteristic building, the K20 at “Grabbeplatz” presents mainly 20th century art by Picasso, Matisse, Mondrian and Klee, among others. Post-war works by Pollock, Stella, Rauschenberg and Warhol, for example, can be seen. The K21 mainly displays artist’s rooms and room installations, while the “Schmela-Haus” is used as a lecture venue and for further exhibitions.
