Duisburg city centre

Get to know the history of Duisburg. The venerable Town Hall with the Gerhard Mercator fountain sculpture is the ideal starting point for your journey from historical to modern Duisburg.

Old Town, fountains, theatre

Explore the historic and modern Duisburg. This city walk with lots of interesting background information takes you from the old town with the time-honoured town hall and the Salvator Church along the remains of the city wall to the vibrant Königstraße with the fountain mile and finally to König-Heinrich-Platz. Six different fountain sculptures by renowned artists, including the colourful "Lifesaver", are scattered along Duisburg's shopping street and are well worth a closer look. The neoclassical theatre on König-Heinrich-Platz is impressive.
