LANDSCHAFTSPARK
DUISBURG-NORD
“HANDS ON” INDUSTRIAL CULTURE

At Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord, discover the iron-
works, a true industrial culture landmark.

Industrial history, leisure and culture all abound on the
200-hectare site. There are numerous attractions to be
found here such as a high-wire course, the diving gaso-
meter and a climbing garden in the midst of former ore
bunkers. In the evening, lighting designed by the British
artist Jonathan Park transforms the ironworks into a
fascinating spectacle. Explore this unique landscape on
a tour with our guide or a former worker at the steel mill,
who can tell you from his own experience how workers
used to “slave away” here.

SPORTPARK GUIDED TOUR
FROM THE EXCAVATED LAKE TO THE
SPORTPARK DUISBURG

In 1919, the company Krupp gave its gravel excavation site
in Wedau to the city of Duisburg with the instruction to cre-
ate a sports and recreational area for the local population.
This led to the creation of Germany’s biggest and most di-
verse sports and recreation park on an area now covering
some 200 hectares. The Regattabahn is world-famous. MSV
Duisburg play their opponents in the schauinsland-rei-
sen-Arena. There is an indoor ice rink, athletics facilities, a
swimming complex and a high ropes course. Several clubs
and associations are based here. The guided tour can be ta-
ken on foot or by bike.
