We arrived as a group 8 and were seated immediately. Pub provides english menus and server spoke excellent english.The problem was getting the orders. It took 35 minutes for just the drinks. Food took longer and it was not a busy night. Atmosphere is typical pub style and is a comfortable setting.

Spent a few hours looking around this place on a Sunday in Germany, easy to find and easy (and free) to access. If you don't mind the steps you'll get some amazing views and the scale of the engineering is jaw dropping.

What a lovely place for a walk amongst the manicured Gardens or to ride the bike and carry on along the river. Stop for a coffee and homemade cake or visit the beer garden for lunch. Inside the church is lovely and quiet with a small shop. Also a painting gallery and ruins display. A huge playground for children and lots of areas for a picnic

Krefeld Zoological Garden is a splendid example for a neatly shaped zoo, with a nice choice of animals and some highlights, attracting also parents, grand-parents and grown-ups.
Neatly shaped: all animals are within a good distance and can easily reached by feet, even if the children (or the grand-parents) are not in the mood of walking...
Choice of animals: in contrary to other zoos you'll never feel regret about the captured animals. All of them make a good impression and seem to be well activated inside their cages or areas. The reasons are surely the choice, no extraordinary animals feeling uncomfortable in a cage are to be seen.
Highlights are the two monkey houses, one older for orangs and chimpanzees, one younger for gorillas. A great adventure is the butterfly house: in a tropical atmosphere all kinds of butterflies are flying freely in a tropical wood. Surprising to see butterflies as big as colibris, and also see them feeding in special feeding points.
A nice playing ground with a restaurant nearby gives a chance to recover.

The Moerser Schloss doesn't look too impressive from the outside. Inside there is an excellent exhibition about the county. It has items from Roman times onwards. The history is very rich, with early disputes between neighbouring counties and duchies such as Kleve, Gelre, Gulik, Cologne, and Brabant. Then Moers is reigned by the Spanish, the Oranges, the Prussians, and Napoleon. Each left their mark, and there are items related to each of these epochs. And there is the escape tunnel, which I think would be more exciting if it would be made darker.

Really nice collection of lakes, only a short bus ride from Duisburg city centre. Unfortunately didn't have enough time to appreciate the area as we were only there for a short time. Given some time and decent weather it seemed ideal for throwing a towel down and sunbathing for the day. It seemed very popular with the locals, who are very lucky to have such a beautiful area on their doorstep.

Smaller than anticipated, but enchanting well-kept Gardens on a slope just under the old monastery. Reconstructed in the period 1986 - 1990. The baroque style is in stark contrast to the simple and austere lifestyle of the monks who once cultivated fruit trees here. French garden design was popular in 18th century Germany. In 1740 Sans Souci was laid out in Potsdam and the similarities are striking (see the explanation at the small exhibition).
Free admission. The Gardens are open from dusk to down.
Cycled there from the Venlo railway station (32 km). Recommended excursion.

Certainly probably the best thing to do in the city of Duisburg, the Zoo is located about 4-5 mins away on the tram. Entry admission prices are standard as they would be for other zoo's. Some notable attractions include the Koala's, Siberian Tigers and South American houses. We did not see any of the bird Exhibitions as there was an outbreak of bird flu in Germany at the time and all the bird's were places indoors. We arrived at 15.30pm on a Sunday, 3.5 hours before the zoo was due to close. However, many of the animals had been places back in their houses well before closing time and as a result we missed out on many of the animals. We were not told that this was going to be the way when we paid for our tickets on the way in. We also thought that some of the animals looked unhappy in their enclosures and seemed aggravated, insecure and/or uneasy. This was really only limited to a few though and most of the animals seemed happy. There was a great Chinese garden there and it is well worth exploring for a while! Overall it was a good experience and it is worth visiting if in the city of Duisburg.

Stadtpark Uerdingen is a pleasant green park in which to pass a few hours. Refreshments are available in the stadthaus café with the many walkways and small Forests. Stop and watch the tennis at either of the two clubs within the park, we have spent many hours here and always enjoyed ourselves. One word of warning however, keep to the paths as wandering into the light undergrowth or onto the grassy area's can bring about the problem of treading into dog dirt. Very messy and a blight on the many dog owners who do pick up after their dogs.

Linksrheinisch, bei Moers, von der A42 in Richtung Kamp-Lintfort fahrend ist die Halde, sehr gut einzusehen.
Hoch oben auf der ehemaligen Abraum-Halde des Bergwerkes Rheinpreußen,
steht die weithin sichtbare Landmarke, einer historischen Gruben-Lampe, die auch das Geleucht genannt wird, zu sehen.
Tagsüber durch seine imposanten Größe von ca. 103 Metern, und der leuchten roten Farbe, ist diese Landmarke weithin sichtbar.
Aben's mit Beleuchtung, ist die Grubenlampe auch sehr sehenswert, da der ganze Berghang bis hin zur Grubenlampe ausgeleuchtet wird.
Das Geleucht, kann man kostenlos besichtigen, der Aufstieg wird dann nochmals mit einer schönen Weitsicht in die Rhein-Ebene belohnt.
Auf vielen ehemaligen Halden, hat man Kunstwerke errichtet, die alle irgendwie, auf ihre Art und Weise, sehenswert sind.
Doch hier auf der ehemaligen Abraumhalde, steht mit dem ehemaligen Bergwerken eng verbunden, ein Kunstwerk, das eine ehemalige Grubenlampe zeigt,
so wie sie zur damaligen Zeit, im täglichen Gebrauch war.
Mit dem Auto, kann man im unteren Teil des Aufstieges parken, und nach ca. 15 Minuten ist man auch schon oben angekommen.
Viele fahren auch mit dem Fahrrad bis ganz nach oben, jeder halt so wie er es kann und möchte.
Ein Besuch der Halde Rheinpreußen, mit der überdimensionalen Grubenlampe, lohnt sich, diese Halde liegt auf der Route der Industriekultur, und ist sehr sehenswert.
