Good to come here for a relaxing walk on a sunny day, escape the crowds of tourists walking around the dome. Lots of interesting modern architecture and a square with a playground where you can take a rest and grab an ice cream.

We had a lovely warm day with the sun shining, so it was ideal to take a walk in this beautiful area. Many people were just relaxing and it was simply beautiful taking in as much as we could. Perfect for the romantic.

Nice walking area along the Rhine. We walked from our boat to the chocolate museum and then took a pedicab back. Lots of people out running walking sitting around having coffee or a bite. Good for people watching ormstrolling.

As a local, this spot is one of my fave places in town for taking a walk. You could enjoy a design flea market regulary and some other music/art/food events, esp. in the summer time. There are exclusive shops and nice restaurants around.
