The location of Dusseldorf offers excellent potential for excursions and day trips or outings to leisure parks.

The CentrO Park in Oberhausen offers great opportunities for recreation and one of the best shopping malls in Europe.

The Phantasialand in Bruhl offers action and thrills that promise excitement and the Safaripark in Stukenbrock reveals the unique atmosphere of wildlife as well as an amusement park.
