landschaftspark duisburg-nord

07/08/2012 § 3 Comments

After our overnight stay in Brussels we packed up and headed to Köln. Although I didn’t get to see too much of the city, I really liked what I did see and we happened to find a pretty cool art festival/party going on in one of the neighbourhoods close by our hotel. The next day we headed to Duisburg to check out the Landschaftspark there. It was established in 1991 as a way to reuse the coal and steel production plant that had been abandoned there in the mid-1980s. The park was probably one of the coolest places I’ve ever visited. Even though it was pretty rainy we climbed all the way to the top of one of the biggest structures there and got an amazing view of the surrounding area. And the best part was we  discovered a huge climbing area and even a slide [last photo], which ended up being the funnest part of our trip.

More photos soon, I’m waiting on a roll from Berlin to be developed. Hope the summer is treating you well!
