Generous park landscapes constitute a ”green axis“ that runs right through Düsseldorf.

The axis commences with the Nordpark with its Japanese Garden, continues through the Rheinpark and Hofgarten and carries on through the Südpark to the Fleher Wäldchen.

Particularly lovers of historic parks will find that the parks of Schloss Benrath, Schloss Eller and Schloss Heltorf are also worth a visit. These parks have been laid out in the English and French styles.

Düsseldorf‘s parks are its ”green lungs“ and offer space for people to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Wherever you are in Düsseldorf – the nearest park isn‘t far away.
