The Landscape Park Duisburg Nord is the outstanding example of a new type of park shaped by industry. At the centre of an area of about 180 hectares, stands the decommissioned Thyssen ironworks in Duisburg-Meiderich. From 1901 to 1985 the works produced pig iron - as a rule as a primary product for further processing in Thyssen's steel works.
Today, visitors can explore the old ironworks as a “living” industrial monument. With its three blast furnaces standing in a row, bunkers, inclined lifts and casthouses, Meiderich ironworks conveys the traditional image of a turn-of-the-century blast furnace plant.
Visitors have the opportunity to familiarise themselves with the production process, from delivery of the raw materials to removal of the pig iron. Blast Furnace 5 in particular is the perfect place to gain a very realistic picture of the impressive production chain of the former ironworks.
Such a comprehensive building stock is unique in the Ruhr District, and also exceptional throughout Germany. What gets architects so excited is that only in Meiderich have the original buildings been so sensibly supplemented with the plants of the post-war period. This is why the whole blast furnace complex has been a listed building since 2000.
But what does the term Landscape Park Duisburg Nord actually entail?
An industrial history circular trail reveals information about the past and the present; and there are gardens, meadows and expanses of water and a natural landscape where nature has grown back, reclaiming its terrain from industry. Visitors can devise a route of their choosing through the park, with the help of information columns and signs on the buildings and throughout the site.
Lots of information columns and signs are equipped with Park+Points. By scanning these QR codes using a suitable app on a smartphone, visitors to the park can access a wide range of information and store them direct to their mobile phone and explore the parklands for themselves in all sorts of ways.
The footpaths in the Landscape Park are as far as possible barrier-free. Dogs are always most welcome in the park.
Enjoy exploring the Landscape Park!
