"An Unmissable Landmark in the Old Town"

Located on Burgplatz, the Schlossturm (castle tower) is all that remains of the Düsseldorf City Palace, which was built in the 13th Century. After a turbulent history, the palace was finally destroyed by a fire in 1872. Today, the Schlossturm is one of the most prevailing places of interest in Düsseldorf's Old Town. Positioned along the Rhine embankment promenade, the castle tower is home to a maritime museum which presents a comprehensive history of shipping along the Rhine. Exhibits include a narrative on ship building, trade on the river, Rhine ecology as well as pictures of people and their lives on the Rhine. A café, offering a wonderful view of the lively square below as well as the ships on the river, can be found on the top floor.
