Possibly the most stunning racecourse in Germany, Düsseldorf Gallopp in the Düsseldorf district of Grafenberg makes a day at the races an extremely exciting yet relaxing trip out.

The views of beautiful surrounding woodlands and hills combine with a calm, joyous atmosphere and the high tension of the races to create an experience to enjoy.

Running from springtime through to late summer or early autumn, the season offers many opportunities to test knowledge of horses, judging of form and a chance or two to place a bet. Food and drinks are on offer as thousands of punters gather each race afternoon or evening. Especially when the weather presents itself bathed in glorious sunshine.

Bikes against railings


Hopping on a bicycle, to discover quieter city districts and nearby villages can be enjoyable and most rewarding. Bike paths weave their way across most of Düsseldorf, along the banks of the Rhine and on to outlying regions.
