Things to do
From your luxury hotel you can take to the fairways of the renowned 18-hole championship golf courses at Kosaido International Golf Club Düsseldorf and Mülheim an der Ruhr Raffelburg. Here, from the terraces and beer garden, you get winning views of the horse races in one of Mülheim’s oldest sports grounds.
Places of interest are dotted all over the Ruhr Valley. Worth a visit is the Bismarck-Tower, which opened in 1908 to honour Otto von Bismarck First. Watergate Island is seen as a historic ‘entry door’ to Rhine-Ruhr and reminder of the area’s industrial past. You could also visit Mülheim’s open-air-theatre – its 2,000 seats make it one of the largest of its kind in Germany.
Kids will love piling into a boat based on an original Viking ship and rowing along one of the nicest parts of the river between Essen-Kettiwg and Mülheim Water Station. Or simply enjoy quality time together in MüGa-Park – 66 hectares of parkland, playgrounds, and gardens with quiet spaces to escape to and art works to enjoy.
