This is a lovely stroll, great boardwalk along the Rhine. Whether it’s daytime or nighttime, you can enjoy a moment of peace, either wandering around, jogging or taking photographs along the promenade.

There is a beautiful walk to be had along the Rhine promenade in Dusseldorf at any time of year. Judging by the number of cafes and bars along the way they must be extremely popular in the summer months particularly at weekends. Moored alongside the...More

The longest bar in Germany they say. It does offer you a nice view on the mighty river Rhine and all the activity going on. Plenty of choice, good food and drinks.

The promenade was withing close walking distance of our hotel and provide easy access to the riverfront. A number of river cruise options are available and the beautiful riverside buildings provide a very nice view of the historic Rhein River. Lots of history here.
