Family friendly travelling in Duesseldorf

Düsseldorf is a city that knows how to have fun, despite its reputation as a major financial center. After all, this is the city of 'five seasons', with the fifth season dedicated to carnival time. Floats, parades and a riot of colorful street costumes make this a delightful time for kids of all ages. Düsseldorf is also known for its love of cartwheeling, something of a city-wide obsession. Family-friendly spectacle seems to run in the Düsseldorfers’ blood.

Things to see in Düsseldorf

Düsseldorf’s history certainly comes to life in the Old Town. There are statues of those cartwheeling kids, whom legend says started the tradition to celebrate a famous victory in the Middle Ages. There are cobbled alleyways with traditional German toy stores, and a church with a wonderfully twisted spire. The district is ringed by pretty parks, with opportunities for lovely walks along the Rhine. The river is a great day out in itself. Taking a boat cruise from the Rheinuferpromenade is an exciting prospect for kids. Even more exciting, perhaps, is a trip to the top of the Rheinturm. This impressive tower looms some 790 feet over the city. After being whizzed up to its sky-high observation platform, you will be treated to spectacular views over Düsseldorf and beyond. It even has a revolving restaurant. Lastly, for a spot of educational fun, try the Aquazoo Löbbecke Museum. It manages to combine an aquarium, terrarium and insectarium, all under one roof!
