    On the banks of the Rhine lies the ruins of the Imperial Palace. Here you can stroll through the old grounds and admire the building ruins. In addition to the old walls, you can also enjoy the magnificent plant splendor. Namely, many different plants grow between the stones of the walls, which make the plant an impressive vertical garden.

    The Kaiserpfalz is open from Good Friday to October 31st daily from 9am to 6pm. Admission is free.

    @Dirter: The Imperial Palace is fenced. I do not know the exact opening hours, but you should not go in at night.

    The ruin of the Imperial Palace Kaiserswerth is located in the Kaiserswerth district of Düsseldorf. The Palatinate goes back to a monastery founded by the monk Suitbert (us) in 700. At that time, the Franconian housemaker Pippin the Middle and his wife Plektrudis donated to the Anglo-Saxon monk a Rhine island artificially created by circumnavigation of the old Rhine arm, on which there was already a Frankish Fronhof - protected by mounds, ditches and palisades. This developed in the following time to a fortified Zollfeste. On December 23, 1982, the facility was entered in the monument list of the city in the category castles, mansions, fortifications, castles.
    The name Kaiserswerth derives from the Middle High German word werth for island. He means thus emperor island or island of the emperor.

    You are not allowed to take the bike with you to or into the courtyard, but you have to connect it outside. You can not see it so unattended.

    I've already visited the Burghof around 1980 with friends. That's when I learned how delicious salami pancakes are.

    The history of the former Kaiserpfalz fortress dates back to around 700. The old ruin in Düsseldorf's Kaiserswerth district and the picturesque city center with its old bars are definitely worth seeing.

    Over 1,000 years old ... and next to it the castle courtyard with the beer garden under chestnut trees and a direct view of the Rhine - a dream!

    Although not genuine, at least typical Niederrhein landscape with rustic retreat in Aschlökske, exactly on the city limits between Dusseldorf and Duisburg. 😅 🚴♂️

    Is it possible to go there at night or is it fenced and locked?

    From Wuppertal on the panoramic bike path Niederbergbahn, a nice tour. From Meiersberg / Homberg cultivated bike path on the road, via Ratigen to Kaiserswerth. From there, there are many more possibilities. Either you drive on to Dusseldorf Hamm, get on the S8 and drive back. Or on to Benrath. From there there are beautiful ways to Cologne. Either via Monheim, or on the other side via Zons. From Kaiserswerth with the ferry over, then on to Mönchengladbach is also very nice. My favorite tour, however, is the one to Cologne. :-))

    The Imperial Palace is a historically interesting place. But Kaiserswerth as a whole invites you to stroll along the Rhine or through the old streets. A delicious meal or a cool drink in the castle courtyard round off a nice trip.
