Sightrunning Düsseldorf – Explore what you will see

First of all, a disclaimer: We run a smooth tempo, you do not need to worry about speed or your condition, you will enjoy the Sightseeing tour.

We will start our tour “Sightrunning Düsseldorf” in the middle of the city in the oldtown – at the Schlossturm. We will align on chat or via phone to ensure how we will find each other.

From Schlossturm we will run with you to the North. We run along the Promenade of the Rhine river of Düsseldorf, leaving the core touristic area and show you the Northern part of the Rhine Park.

Form there we will run up to the Northern bridge (Theodor Heuss Bridge) from where you can see also our the stadium, the Merkur Spiel Arena.

This first part of Düsseldorf’s sightrun happens on the Eastern Side of the river.

Go West: Reaching Düsseldorf Oberkassel and Niederkassel, the more rich part of the city.

By passing the bridge we will cross the river and show you also the western part of the river.
Düsseldorf Niederkassel and Oberkassel. Being on the Western part of during our Düsseldorf Sightrun you will have a nice view on the Altstadt if good whether conditions allow it.

We will run along the street and will see a lot of luxury car brands.

We will tell you about a bridge that was able to move from one place to another, the Oberkasseler bridge. Hard to believe but it`s really true!

It happened in the 70tees and there is even a video showing the movement.

On our most South spot of the Sightrun we will cross the third bridge, the Rheinkniebrücke. It is very close to the Rhinetower.

After crossing, we will enter the southern Part of the promenade. You will see -depending on the time- a lot of people idling around. Tourists and people from Düsseldorf share this place as it is one of the most beautiful ones to.

Finally we will end our Sightseeing tour at Schlossturm again, we will have ran 8 km, are a bit exhausted.
You know more about Düsseldorf and are happy that you did some Sports while you were here.

Your Takeaways of the Sightrun

Later when you are back home, you will think:

“Düsseldorf is a very nice city and even if you are not born there, if you are afar and think of it, you will feel like being whimsical”

– as Heinrich Heine said.

You will know the difference between Oberkassel and Düsseldorf, you will know some nice spots to further do sports and if you fancy, you will also know (verbally) what is the difference between Alt beer and Kölsch beer. You actually did do Sightseeing in Düsseldorf by doing a Sightrun.

Then you know that you successfully RUN2KNOW Düsseldorf with us!

Absoluter Daumen nach oben! Ich habe mit Jens und Flo ein hervorragendes Sightrunning durch Düsseldorf erlebt, dabei viel Wissenswertes erfahren und tolle Locations gesehen. Wir sind ordentliche 8 km in ca. 45 Minuten gelaufen, was eine echt gute Pace ist. Die Beiden sind sehr sympathisch und die Terminfindung war easy. Weiter so!

Very nice way to discover the city while doing what I totally love, running. Our guides were super friendly locals who love their city and are both good runners so talking and running was not a problem ;-) Highly recommend this group!
Tolle Idee- Sport und Sightseeing kombiniert. Motivation zum Laufen, schöne Strecke, interessante Infos und Anekdoten zu der schönsten Stadt am Rhein. Perfekt für Business traveler die sich nach der Arbeit noch bewegen wollen und gleichzeitig etwas von der Stadt erfahren mögen, perfekt für sportliche Touristen und genauso toll für Düsseldorfer - man erfährt definitiv noch spannendes, das man selbst noch nicht von der eigenen Stadt wusste.

We had a great time combining 2 of our favorite things, running and exploring a new city 😎 Jens and Flo tell you interesting things about Düsseldorf while running and we could enjoy the views and beautiful buildings at a higher pace than you normally would. So if you and your colleagues or friends are looking for a fun way to discover Düsseldorf and you enjoy a run…this is it 🤩

Run2Know is a great concept to combine being active and experiencing a new city. We went for a round of about 8km with a comfortable pace, which allowed the guide (Jens) to explain the areas we passed by. In addition to seeing areas of the city that a tourist normally would not visit, you get to experience the city through the experience of a Düsseldorf local. I would definitely recommend the experience to anyone looking to explore Düsseldorf :)
I would highly recommend it. There is nothing better than getting to know something new and cool about the city and nearby places while doing one of your favorite things. And trust me, its definitely more than something :) I also think its not just for those who are visiting Düsseldorf(although its GREAT for those) but also amazing for folks like me who're living here since years but never took the city tour :D I'm glad I went for this rather than the city tour. Probably will go for it again.
