Rhine river promenade in Dusseldorf (part 2)

Last post was about winter.

But summer. Summer is like Rhine promenade on steroids !!!

Everything is more, heightened…

People are constantly present there, whether it’s day or night. Tourists from all over the world enjoy in best walk from “Old Town” – Altstadt all the way to Media Harbour – MedienHafen.

On their path there are countless restaurants, cafés and bars.

Of course, most popular is Kasematten Dusseldorf – a row of several restaurants along the river. They are always working in full capacity, they offer amazing view on Rhine, famous for their food, drinks but most importantly stunning panorama and breathtaking sunsets.

For those who prefer more casual style, there are benches along entire Rhine promenade where you can sit, enjoy and drink an Altbier or two 😉

Lots of young people bring some food, mostly pizza and have great time with their friends on most popular staircase in Altstadt.

Though, in summer months, specially in the evening, line for taking the bench is looong. Everyone tries to catch a free one 🙂


Burgplatz – paradise for gathering and socializing

One of the liveliest parts of the Altstadt.

Burgplatz or in English “Castle Square” is beautiful, wide, open and always alive place in Dusseldorf.

In addition to being the link between Altstadt and Rheinuferpromenade (Old Town and Rhine promenade), Burgplatz is also a gathering place for tourists, as well as citizens of Dusseldorf.This square has great view on Rhine, lots of restaurants, brewery and of course central part – Schlossturm.

Schlossturm or “Castle Tower” now hosts Maritime Museum and offers interested tourists wonderful attraction to visit.

But, besides all of this, especially in the summer, or at least during warmer days, stairs that lead to Rhine promenade are full with people – young, old, happy, quiet, alone or in a larger society, couples …

Everyone is there. They usually sit and drink beer, wine, Killepitsch, Jagermeister, smoke or eat takeaway pizza.

And, usually, there are always some talented people eager for audience, performing – singing, playing, or dancing.

It’s a beautiful feeling to belong to the positive crowd.

Everyone is welcome !!!
