If you are staying in Duisburg or surrounding you shouldn´t miss a (short) visit of the Rheinpark in Duisburg Hochfeld.
Its´s a former industrial area along the Rhine and they have developed it into a nice green area, with large meadows, benches and beach chairs, playgrounds, skateboard park, an artificiel sand beach in front of the restaurant "Ziegenpeter" and there are still ruins of former industrial buildings, colourful painted with graffiti.
You can walk or bike along the Rhine, have picnic or sit in or outside of the restaurant and enjoy the gorgeous view over the Rhine.
It´s not spectaculare, it´s a nice alternative to spend some time in a typical industrial area but with a lot of green and nice views.
You can reach it by Tram 903 from Duisburg Hbf or of course by car.
The restaurant is somewhat special. It is part of a project with disabled and non handicapped people who are working there together, and believe me, they do a very good job!
I would like to write a review but it isn´t listed yet...Edited: 11 August 2013, 09:11
