There are also quite unusual vacation spots in Duisburg, which adventure lovers would like. An excellent example is the Landschaftspark, which was opened on the territory of an old industrial plant. When the plant was closed, the city authorities wanted to dismantle all the buildings on its territory, but later decided to leave everything as it is and make the territory open for visiting. While walking around this unusual “technopark”, one can see a lot of the most incredible structures and cob webbing of pipes and stairs. Many old industrial buildings in summer are entwined with plants, which makes their appearance even more original.
