Although today's architecture is modern and with flashy forms, almost the city of Dusseldorf is over 700 years old. 1288 Dusseldorf got the town charter, although it was a small collection of houses along a single street. But in earlier times it was recognized the exposed location of the city on the banks of the Rhine and built however from the infrastructure. Make a walk through the streets with open eyes who discovers here and there even the remains of monumental architecture. At Castle Square, for example, the rest of a castle is located that the lords of Berg , namesake of the "Bergische Land", built there where the Düssel flows into the Rhine 600 years ago. However, in 1872 a fire devoured the walls, leaving only the still visible small part of the castle with the tower.
