Hello, the e-scooter tour was a great success. We were traveling with 6 women and our guide Dieter and that was really great. Dieter explained the scooters to us in a great way and then the ride through Düsseldorf was fun that we will definitely repeat in another city. Greetings from Lorup

get your tickets online to avoid extra waiting at the entrance; make sure you have no fear in elevators that 'lift you up' upto 170 meters high in just one minute; but the 360° view in the Rheinturm is worth it all ... !!!

I took my friend for his birthday to see the Rheinturm It was a great time we got to enjoy some cake. Very good experience, I recommend

Heute leider etwas trüb, aber trotzdem schön. Der Ausblick zahlt sich in jedem Fall aus. :)

it's a nice trip down the river and the Eiskaffee tastes so good.
