The art collection is really worth seeing, also the beautiful natural surrounding. There is a nice restaurant (meals are included in the entrance fee) which offers delicious traditional local food.

Even if you aren't an art expert/lover it's worth a visit. Unique setting, special art, a place you'll never forget.

Well, no one with any travel experience would say that Germany does not have great art museums and galleries in all its major cities. Modern art in particular is very well represented. Hombroich is so lovely, it is like living art or performance art, where the visitor is the performer. The runish rocks in the woods, Adam and Eve as fantastic rusty ivy covered robots, gorgeous paintings and sculpture from India.. the list of why you should spend the day there goes on and on.

we went for a visit to hombroich museum insel. It is not so well known, but really worth a visit. It is a walk where you meet some buildings where the doors are open. Inside is a nice collection of art, a mixture of native and modern. Outside are also works of art, some hidden. Special is that there are no explanation cards (made bij mr x, born 19xx, name of painting, paint on linnen) There are no suppost. It is also your responsability to be a guest and enjoy the works of art. Nature is not to much cultured, paths are ok. but mostly common plants, appletrees etc.

The Insel Hombrioch is on the edge of Dusseldorf proper and offers one the ability to continue the pursuit of art, for which Dusseldorf is known, but in an environment where the art is wholly in harmony with nature.

Once you pay admission, trails will guide you to various exhibits of art, architecture and sculpture. Along the way, you may encounter a beaver (as we did), or watch your children climb the many outdoor sculptures. Oddly, though there is some art of great value on display, what you won't encounter is the oppressive art museum guards that ubiquitously stand watch at most other museums of this caliber.

A free lunch is provided at one of the pavillions, though the quality is somewhat mixed and the indoor seating oppressively warm.

Finally, don't be put off by the austere website, which I felt did not accurately represent the accessibility of this site to the average tourist.
