A landmark in a significant location
If the Rhine and Ruhr had not converged, Duisburg would possibly never have come into being in the first place more than one thousand years ago. The location then became even more important during the industrialisation of the Ruhr Area. It turned Duisburg Port into the world’s biggest inland port and it remains so to this day. So it is little wonder that this place has a special significance in the city, which is why the 25-metre-high Rheinorange sculpture was erected here in 1992. It is visible from miles around and now also marks the end of the popular RuhrtalRadweg cycle path.
