The Düsseldorf Kö is world renowned, but it is far from being the only promenade in the city. The Rhine embankment promenade is also very popular and was designed between 1990 and 1997 according to the plans of the architect Niklaus Fritschi.
No wonder, since the promenade between the old town and the river has so much to offer: balmy breezes and spectacular sunsets, gastronomy with a view at the Kasematten, an open staircase and also the city beaches during summer time. The prerequisite for the one-and-a-half kilometre quality of life was the construction of the Rhine bank tunnel. Original Düsseldorfers who know the situation from earlier times still congratulate themselves on the fact that the traffic that flowed parallel to the river here before 1990 now flows underground.
