Spent a few hours looking around this place on a Sunday in Germany, easy to find and easy (and free) to access. If you don't mind the steps you'll get some amazing views and the scale of the engineering is jaw dropping.

Really nice collection of lakes, only a short bus ride from Duisburg city centre. Unfortunately didn't have enough time to appreciate the area as we were only there for a short time. Given some time and decent weather it seemed ideal for throwing a towel down and sunbathing for the day. It seemed very popular with the locals, who are very lucky to have such a beautiful area on their doorstep.

Certainly probably the best thing to do in the city of Duisburg, the Zoo is located about 4-5 mins away on the tram. Entry admission prices are standard as they would be for other zoo's. Some notable attractions include the Koala's, Siberian Tigers and South American houses. We did not see any of the bird Exhibitions as there was an outbreak of bird flu in Germany at the time and all the bird's were places indoors. We arrived at 15.30pm on a Sunday, 3.5 hours before the zoo was due to close. However, many of the animals had been places back in their houses well before closing time and as a result we missed out on many of the animals. We were not told that this was going to be the way when we paid for our tickets on the way in. We also thought that some of the animals looked unhappy in their enclosures and seemed aggravated, insecure and/or uneasy. This was really only limited to a few though and most of the animals seemed happy. There was a great Chinese garden there and it is well worth exploring for a while! Overall it was a good experience and it is worth visiting if in the city of Duisburg.

Walked there to the top was quite long from the parking area, but once you reach the area, it was well worth to have. Excellent view around factory and city around. If you are not afraid of height you also can try the "roller coaster" for walk...

Sure, Duisburg isn't Köln or Düsseldorf, but its efforts cannot go unrecognized. The Innenhafen isn't bustling like other riversides around the world, but it is quaint, pleasant, and some may even suggest the word "romantic". I've made it into one of my running routes, and would definitely hang out at the little park in the area during the warmer months. The spot is also great for pet owners and families.

While a nice and warm place to walk around if it is cold outside, the shopping mall only hosts high-end fashion stores and electronic stores. If you are looking for food, you can find it outside or on the City Palais across the street.
Interesting ladder though that starts inside and protrudes all the way outside the facility.
If you are looking to shop, this is it!

Duisburg Alstadt is ruined during WW II. This building was also destroyed. The original Rathus was built at the end of the 19. century and after the war more or less reconstructed. It gas a very nice facade.

Close to the Rathaus there is this gothic church: Originally it is from the 14. centruy, but it was rebuilt several time, latest after the bombings of WW II. They have nice Concerts in the church.

Not far from downtown Duisburg, easy access by bus. Fairly new and modern football only stadium. It was the season opening against FCK and yet not even close to full capacity. Not the greatest experience, quite okay though.

This is much more than a Fountain, this is art. Niki de Saint Phalle and Jean Tinguely has in different cities statues like this. Both artists are among the bests of the contemporary art scene. By the way, on the Königstrasse there are more Fountains, it is also called "fountain mile". Duisburg city can be proud to have such an art piece.
