Walking Tours in & around Düsseldorf: Kaiserswerth & Kalkum

  • This location is shown only to members

Are you interested to learn more about Düsseldorf's countryside or the surrounding areas? We will do walking tours of approx. 2,5 to 3 hours plus visit of a café, restaurant, snack bar or brewery. And how about having a picpic in the summer season?

Participation fee EUR 2,- per person payable in cash at the beginning of the tour!

Important notes for walking tours:
1. You have to be at the meeting point on time! There is no possibility to consider latecomers!
2. Starting points and terminal points/final destinations are not always identical! (Important, if you decide to come by bicycle or car)
3. Please bring drink and food you need for the tour. There might be no shops on the way!

 

Kaiserswerth and Kalkum are both Düsseldorf suburbs in the north of the city. You will see the Kalkum castle with its nice park, part of the "village of Kalkum", the ruins of Kaiserswerth Imperial Palace, St. Suitbert's Church and a lot more. At the end of the tour we will go to Galerie Burghof.

Meeting Point!!!

Travel: Ticket 1000 or Ticket 2000. You can take the U79 from Düsseldorf Hbf, Heinrich-Heine-Allee or Duisburg Hbf directly to Klemensplatz. If you do not have a VRR season ticket please also see www.vrr.de ! For those of you you prefer to come by car or bicycle there is a parking lot close to Klemensplatz!

RSVP Yes / No -
Proper event hosting isn't possible without a proper attitude amongst far most members. One thing a lot of members don't seem to realize, is that proper event hosting isn't possible if lots of people make a reservation for an event, but don't clear the reservation if they are not going to be there. It can happen, but if lots of people don't show up then this is annoying to other attendees, it's causing problems with reservations, and it is respectless towards event organizers. So please don't let “signing up easy and clearing the reservation never” become a habit.
Please be as punctual with your RSVP as possible and give those on the waiting list a chance to participate if you are not coming!

Looking forward to an enjoyable day!!

      Yeah, let's keep our fingers crossed. But so far, we have always been lucky! And I have changed the tour a bit, because the route to Angermund along the Rhine and across the countryside does need better and warmer weather.
