Already in the year 1276 Ratingen received the municipal laws and can therefore look back on a long history, which can still be found nowadays in the medieval urban core. Whoever likes to stroll calmly in his holidays, will be delighted about the cafes, pubs and many small and big shops. But also the popular destinations in Düsseldorf or the Ruhr area can be reached fast. As the “green lungs“ of the region, approx. 70% of the city area consists of forests, meadows and fields. Cyclists and hikers will find a splendidly constructed path network. Directly at the house, little and big explorers will experience the nature in the forest at close range. Aplenty variety is also offered by the amusement park “Blauer See“ and the recreation park “Volkardey“- terrific destinations for the family-holiday.
