Rheinpark Golzheim

The Rheinpark Golzheim stretches from the district of Pempelfort far into the district of Golzheim, about 2.5 kilometres along the right bank of the Rhine. The spacious, 24.1-hectare Rheinpark, with its many meadows, poplars, birch and maple trees, offers lots of space for relaxation, sport and playing. The park is usually filled with footballers, joggers and tennis players throughout the day. From the Rheinpark, visitors have an unimpeded view of the gently curving banks of the Rhine and the city skyline.

The Rheinpark owes its existence to the interests of business and industry. The marshy Golzheimer Island, which was situated here between the Rheinterrasse and Theodor-Heuss-Brücke up to the end of the 19th century, would probably not have been reclaimed so quickly if the people of Düsseldorf hadn’t needed a suitable site for the major Industry, Trade and Art Exhibition in 1902.

In the 1920s the Rheinpark was further developed according to the principles of a “Volkspark” (People’s Park). Today the entire park is a conservation area.
