    Amazing place for any car fan. Cafe and bar are not to be missed either. Every time I'm in Düsseldorf, I visit this place. It's just such a peaceful, welcoming, and interesting place.

    One of the main shopping streets of Düsseldorf. It was lighted beautifully for Christmas. Very busy with shoppers on Saturdays.

    Fabulous
    We enjoyed the view as the weather was very clear.
    The Rhine is very cool.watching the shipping from the viewing tower was great.
    We also enjoyed a beer during our visit.
    For me the lift going up on the outside would of been spectacular.
    Overall a good experience when in Düsseldorf.

    This is a very nice stroll at the banks of river Rhine. Nice view of the old town and the Rhine Tower (Rheinturm). I did the walk around 10:00 in the morning, a cold but sunny day in December. There were very people. Perfect time to take pictures!

    I love to take a walk in Wildpark. It's quite relaxing, you get in touch with nature and animals. It's free and always clean. A must do if you want to get to know Düsseldorf and see that it's not only Kö and Altstadt.

    The trip was OK and I recognize that the required transfer to a different boat at the midpoint of the Rhine was not AMA's fault since the river level was very low. The line did however, arrange for a tour boat to take us through the area where we could see the castles before we entered our substitute ship.

    However, my wife and I found the cabins to be small. On the plus side, the dining room had very good food and service; and the staff was very helpful.

    The Schloss grounds are lovely for a picnic or a family outing. The Christmas markets at Schloss Benrath are also wonderful - if you can find it, I recommend the Sake Glühwein!

    Now this exhibition with paintings made by Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is a special one. The artist, a daughter from parents born in Ghana, has developed expert skills of painting, as based upon learning from pioneers in former times. One can recognise that Lynette Yiadom-Boakye must have looked at Rembrandt, Singer-Sargent, as well as Goya and other old 'Masters”. Information from other reviews tell 'also at historic family portraits'.
    The often imaginated people as portrait or figure(s) are placed in context, whereby the artist uses color and darkness / lightness of background as important, support. There is history, as influenced by her background. There is an eye that exposes thought, experience and emotion of people portrayed. Yes, all figures are black. Which is a normality, unusal for white people, like the author of this review. Like many, his experience is tainted by collections in museums of the Western World, where mostly white people feature in paintings. Yet, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye convinces open-minded spectators by the self evidency of the scenes and roles of the characters she depicts. Class.
    Georges Braque – Erfinder des Kubismus. One might argue whether Cézanne was not 'the inventor'. But the exhibition contains nice art of Braqua and colleagues, covering early, mid- and late stage of cubism.

    The Stadternahmemonument is the most unique statue I have ever seen. Located in the Old Town, this large monument was created in 1988, commemorating the 700th anniversary of the city rights to Dusseldorf, Germany. We were treated to a detailed explanation of this beautiful statue by locals
    Klaus & Karin! The statue depicts the Battle of Worringen, the City Seal, and Parish Church. The statue is in a bustling area of town, where there is so much to see and do. Do yourself a favor and check out this magnificent monument!

    Nice area to explore and enjoyed seeing this one. Something appeals about it and glad to have happened upon it. Worth a little wander around to observe it.

    As mentioned in other reviews, features not only typical aquarium animals but also other animals such as crocodiles, as well as exhibits on the history of marine exploration and the importance of the seas to human livelihoods.
    There were a few interactive things which the kids enjoyed - peering through microscopes at various objects, and a simulation of a submarine.

    A couple of caveats:
    There is no place to eat inside of the museum. We would have stayed longer but one of my kids needed a snack so we had to cut our visit short. There is a cafe nearby in the Nordpark but it was unfortunately closed.
    It was quite crowded when we visited, during the school break. I bought the tickets online, so we could enter without queuing. The queue to purchase tickets at the museum was quite long and there was only one person at the desk. So in our case it was well worth the extra cost (1 euro per ticket) to book online.
