It was a bit difficult to find this place after get off the train, but it was because I was looking for Kaiserswerth in Google Maps, and not Kaiserpfalz. You have to put Kaiserpfalz on Google Maps to find the place properly. It's really interesting...More

Took the U-Bahn #79 from central Düsseldorf (Heinrich-Heine-Allee station) to Kaiserswerther to visit the "Kaiserpfalz" ruins of Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa's Royal Palace (25 minute ride). We got off at Kittelbachstraße stop and walked on a residential street and pathway to the ruins. Amazing history, not...More

I was there for about 2 hours. Worth to visit. You can walk there and take some beatiful picyures. I did not read the history of this place, but try to read before :))

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
