This is just another ruin with historical importance set on the banks of the river Rhine downstream of Düsseldorf (about 10km). This is a small gentle town, ideal for a short escape from downtown Düsseldorf or underway from/to DUS

The castle ruins of the Kaiserpfalz are on the banks of the river Rhine. Amazingly old ruins from the 10th century. The site itself is not accessible beyond summer months, but it is worth visiting year around- weather permitting. Nice walk along the river and...More

The history of Kaiserswerth was interesting, and the area was neat, but the sight itself was not as big/extensive as I thought. We planned an afternoon around it (the sight and the area, with a boat cruise back to Altstate) and felt we have budgeted...More

The ruins speak more than thousand words. Unless you come by bicycle parking will be tricky, but managable. You must not forget to spoil yourself to a homebrew in the ferry restaurant afterwards ;-)

If you want to get the small medieval town experience, with a really calm atmosphere, hit this off the beaten path, and spend 2 or 3 hours exploring the ruins and the town. Remember to stay hydrated by visiting the tavern.
