The arrival of Spring means greener parks, longer days and of course Spring flowers! Here are ten great places to see flowers all around Düsseldorf.
We love the Botanical Garden at Heinrich Heine University. Not only is it a great place to see cherry blossoms, but you’ll also find a wide variety of plants and flowers from all around the world.
There are numerous gardens and greenhouses to explore, including the South Africa house with its exotic flower collection.
NOTE: The greenhouses are currently closed due to Coronavirus. Outdoor areas remain open to enjoy. For the latest visitor information, please visit this page.
Address: Universitätsstraße 1, Düsseldorf
EKŌ-Haus of Japanese Culture
Though its great for a visit any time of year, the EKŌ-Haus of Japanese Culture’s perfectly manicured garden and colorful cherry blossoms are especially impressive in the spring. The stone bridge, lanterns and temple add to the authentic ambiance.
After exploring the garden, take a self guided tour of the Japanese house and temple.
Address: Brüggener Weg 6, Düsseldorf
Schloss Benrath & Gardens
Schloss Benrath is a beautiful palace surrounded by ca. 61 hectares of gardens and woodlands. There’s a large flower garden to the right of the main palace building which we highly recommend. In addition, there are miles of walking paths, a reflecting pond and several nice fountains. An absolute highlight!
Address: Benrather Schlossallee 100-108, Düsseldorf
This park is a relaxing space that’s tucked away in the heart of the city. It’s home to flowering plants and trees, a nice pond, walking paths and the K21 art museum.
Address: K21 Kunstsammlung, Ständehausstraße 1, Düsseldorf
A little park that’s big on charm. With an abundance of flowers, this is one of the most colorful spots in the city for its size. And because its perched above the Rhein, you’ll have a great view of the river too. From here it’s just a quick walk across the street to our next pick.
Address: Joseph-Beuys-Ufer, Düsseldorf
Take in the Tulips
Art meets nature: Thousands of incredibly colorful tulips usually bloom along the pathways that connect the Museum Kunstpalast art museum and Tonhalle performing arts venue each Spring.
Address: Ehrenhof 1, Düsseldorf (Tonhalle)
This sprawling park has it all, including an impressive reflecting pond with fountains, sculptures and a variety of gardens. It’s also home to the Aquazoo.

Tucked away behind the Stadtmuseum (city museum), the peaceful rose garden is always worth a visit. Tip: Entry to the Stadtmuseum is free on Sundays.
Address: Bäckerstraße, Düsseldorf
Sixteen themed gardens, a fun hedge labyrinth, water gardens, a petting zoo, and a lake are just a few of the reasons to visit Südpark.
