Nordpark and Japanese Garden
Nordpark is the pride of Dusseldorf, and with good reason. This 36.6-hectare (90.4-acre) park is packed with all the right elements of a bustling city’s green lungs. The park boasts wide pathways that spell paradise for walkers and bikers, immaculate flower-beds bursting with colourful blooms, ponds shaded by dense trees, beautiful fountains and theme gardens. Nordpark’s northwest edge is bordered by the Japanese Garden; designed by Japanese landscape artist Iwaki Ishiguro, it’s a little slice of traditional Japan, with its maples and black pines, gravel-bordered ponds, Japanese sculptures and traditional lighting and seating.
