Here are our own tips for your leisure activities:


Close to the apartment you will find Rheinpark Golzheim, which is a really nice place for a walk or sporting activities. It's a 10 minutes walk (1,2 km) from the apartment. Within Düsseldorf there are further opportunities for a nice walk at Hofgarten. It is about 20 min by foot (2 km) if you follow Nordstr. Also rather close to the apartment is the Nordpark, which you can reach within 40 min (3 km) by foot if you walk along the riverside. Worthwhile destinations in the city would also be the Grafenberger Wald (6,2 km), the district Kaiserswerth (7km), the Unterbacher See (12 km), Schoß Benrath (16 km) or the Urdenbacher Kämpen (20 km). If you have more time to go on a full day trip, we recommend e.g. Zons (21 km), Schloß Burg (66 km), theWuppertalsperre (67 km), the Drachenfels in Königswinter (80 km).



There are several cultural offers in düsseldorf from theatres, museums and for many concerts to which you get the best information through the links above. Outside Düsseldorf would recommend a visit to Museum Insel Hombroich, at Schoss Dyck, at Clemens Sels Museum in Neuss or at Rheinischen Landestheater in Neuss. If you have more time you should thionk about a trip to the römisch-germanischen Museums and the Schokoladenmuseums in Köln or to the various museums Museumsmeile in Bonn, or the exceptional theatres Pantheon Theaters or Springmaus in Bonn.



An attractive possibility for a run in the immediate vicinity of the apartment is a route along the Rhine .



Highly recommended is a visit to Schmittmanns Edel-Korn-Brennerei. For guided tours but you have to sign up well in advance and be at least ten people. In the sale shop however you can go to try and buy the genuine local specialties as a special gift for the loved ones at home. Right next door you can reinforce at locally brewed beer and traditional food at the Brauhaus Joh. Albrecht. It takes three quarter of an hour by foot from the apartment to the distillery and the brewery.
