A Glimpse of Dusseldorf and the Ruhr Region (2/2)

Benrath Baroque Palace

One of the many Palace Gardens

From Bike Tour #1, the terraced park we rode to the top of, you can faintly see the observation tower at the top

The view of an indoor ski slope from the observation tower, about 5 stories up in the air.

Duisburg Nord, the vegetation reclaiming the industrial past

Some of the old industrial buildings within the park

A vine covered wall of a small courtyard garden

This was an area of extreme soil contamination, a soil cap was placed and an ornamental garden planted on top

One of the canals cleaned and filtered by plant material, now safe to swim in or sunbath on one of the several docks
