Duisburg Travel Guide: 124 reviews and 489 photos

Duisburg is a city in the center of the 'ruhrgebied'. Therefor it is also well-known for its industry. Last visit we went to the city and in my opinion there isn't much to see. At the time we where there , a handcraft market took place in the center. You know , such an occasion where people dress up in traditionally clothing and in Germany eat lots of sausages (since it is the national dish there - in different sizes) and show of their homemade art. (we did had a good laugh).
The center is modern , with most of the time ugly buildings. It has no hart and only a few ancient buildings left - religious mostly.
BUT - now comes the good part - except for the landschaftspark (see other pagemakers) it has a zoo....
