The fascination of the Landscape Park
At the Landscape Park Duisburg Nord the emphasis is very much on sport, leisure and relaxation. Diving, climbing, walking or simply enjoying the view from Blast Furnace 5 – the extensive site with its gardens, meadows and expanses of water has something for everyone.
Visitors can wander through the site on foot or explore on bike, bike hire being available. You can stroll on your own through the Landscape Park or join a guided group tour and learn about industrial history.
Children and youngsters see the park as a gigantic adventure playground. There’s a huge tube slide through two ore bunkers, an open hall for popular sports such as skating and mountain biking, lots of play areas and even a Farm School.
However, there’s one park highlight that visitors can only enjoy in the evenings. That’s when a light installation by the British artist Jonathan Park immerses the former ironworks in a fascinating sea of light and colour.
