5 things to do in Dusseldorf right now

It's hard not to fall in love with Dusseldorfs beautiful streets, the small restaurants and cafés and the city's overall flair. Because some of the things we normally enjoy doing sadly aren't yet possible again, we compiled a list of great stuff to do throughout the city to make the most of your stay.


Take a stroll through Dusseldorfs green corners - like the japanese garden besides the Rhine. This park is a real gem hidden in the northwest corner of Dusseldorfs Nordpark. The 5000 square metre area has existed since the 1970s and was designed by the Japanese garden and landscape architect Iwakii Ishiguro and his son Shojiro. You should definitely go there to cross the small bridge, watch the fish and enjoy the utter peace and silence of nature to relax a bit in the sun

... And visit the "Düsselland" - a pop-up amusement park opening on 26th of June that offers over 20 rides - from a ferris wheel to rollercoasters, food and drink stalls as well as numerous shows and street acts to keep you entertained during your visit.

If you're more of the active type, why not try a biking tour to Kaiserswerth, which is a quiet suburb with a charming traditionally german village vibe. Simply rent one of our Ruby Bikes and get started. The trip should take you around 2 hours and as soon as you arrive in the town there's a lot to explore: Like the famous ruins of the Kaiserpfalz, a castle dating from the 12th century that offers a beautiful panoramic view of the Rhine and the surrounding countryside or the cobbled streets lined with baroque buildings. And if you're hungry after all that activity you can enjoy typical german cuisine in one of the beer gardens at the main square - so everything one could want out of a daytrip.

We love music. That's why we're more than excited about the Asphalt festival adapting to the circumstances. Asphalt at sea is to take place from 9 to 19 July, just like the originally planned asphalt Festival 2020. There will be daily performances at 17h, 19h and 21h featuring not onyl concerts, but also readings and performances by local artists. 


Soak up some sunrays, enjoy a picnic and a cocktail or two at Dusseldorfs Paradiesstrand. Far away from the cities hustle and bustle of the city centre the beach makes you feel like you're on a holiday in the south. You can make your way there crossing the small pedestrian bridge in the Medienhafen. After leaving the bridge, footpaths lead directly to the beach.
