The 3.5 kilometre-long Rheinanlagen park on the left bank of the Rhine consists of the Konrad Adenauer-Ufer and the Kaiserin-Augusta-Anlagen.
The Kaiserin-Augusta-Anlagen, the southern part of the Rheinanlagen, was commissioned between 1856 and 1861 on behalf of Augusta von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach, the wife of Kaiser Wilhelm I, and designed by the brilliant Prussian landscape architect, Peter-Joseph Lenné (Sanssouci, Pfaueninsel-Peacock Island, and many more) to the plans of Hermann Fürst von Pückler-Muskau.
In 1902, twelve years after Augusta’s death, the second part of the Rheinanlagen was constructed - the Konrad-Adenauer-Ufer - between the Electoral Palace and the Deutsches Eck.
The Rheinanlagen parks were redesigned as part of the German National Garden Show 2011. This gave rise to a magnificent river boulevard which is lined with important sights that invites visitors to take a stroll.
