Duisburg is out and about

Lakes, forests, industrial culture, festivals and high culture Wow your guests! Millions of people flock to the former collieries and ironworks in the Ruhr region every year. In Duisburg itself, the main attractions are the Landschaftspark-Duisburg-Nord, featuring its furnace towers and machine halls, the spectacular Tiger & Turtle ‘walkable roller coaster’ and Duisburg’s Inner Harbour, with its numerous inviting waterside bars and restaurants. The Deutsche Oper am Rhein and the Duisburg Philharmoniker offer a highly cultured experience of global renown. Duisburg’s museum landscape, meanwhile, is equally refined and impressive. Few other cities in Germany have as many green spaces and bodies of water as Duisburg. The range of outdoor leisure activities for sports fans and nature lovers is just as diverse.
