1. About Sakura in Düsseldorf Kaiserswerth
Düsseldorf’s northern ward Kaiserswerth is pretty old and historic. The exact same applied to its amazing chestnut tree avenue along its market square. Unfortunately, due to bark-beetles, these trees got sick, and some died. As a result, the Kaiserswerther Markt had to get rid of its gorgeous avenue.
Thus, something had to replace it as it looked ridiculously empty at Kaiserswerth’s heart. Temporary 20 flower buckets fill the gap since the end of February. So, what’s inside them? Astonishingly, cherry trees!
2. The new Sakura Avenue at Kaiserswerther Markt
When I first saw those 20 cherry trees blooming on Kaiserswerther Markt, my jaw dropped. Not long ago, I mourned for the loss of the chestnut tree avenue. Within a second, I literally saw Phoenix rising from the ashes. From that moment, Düsseldorf officially expanded its catalogue in terms of Sakura hotspots.
2.1 Strolling through the gorgeous Sakura Avenue in Kaiserswerth
Once you properly enter the Markt and stand right in front of this avenue, deep joy unleashes from the bottom of the heart. Amazingly, they managed to make these tiny cherry trees stand out. Together with the buckets, they reach up to 4 metres in height. Hence, it feels like going through a proper avenue.
Moreover, many great views are being enabled, where the Sakura frames the surrounding old buildings. In terms of photo motifs, there are endless possibilities. Especially seeing the former town hall being framed by cherry blossoms, is like a dream you’ve actually never had. But now it’s top-notch being real.
2.2 Amazing Perspective of the Cherry Blossom Fest
Every one of us knows these moments which seem unsurpassable. Did I have this feeling during my stroll through Kaiserswerth`s Sakura avenue? Absolutely. However, as they say, don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
Blessedly, the western end of the Markt discloses one epic perspective. The cherry blossom avenue gloriously frames the small high rise in town. Never ever could you set the scene more effectively.
Although this marks the highlight in terms of cherry blossoms, some sneaky flowers might almost steal the show. In case you pay attention, the former town hall will put the cherry on top of the cake.
2.3 When Cherry Blossoms aren’t sufficient – Additional Flower Parade at the former Town Hall
Came for cherry blossoms, stayed for other flowers. That’s what literally happened to me. Hopefully, I can convince you to do the same.
So, along the stairway’s handrail of the “Rathaus”, a great variety of colourful flowers have been installed. Now, the entrance side looks as gorgeous as ever. While its brick facade is already tremendously expressive, these flowers round the picture perfectly up.
Now, by walking upstairs, totally new views open up. Particularly, the panorama of Kaiserswerther Markt is breathtaking. If you hunker down a little bit, Sakura and these beautiful flowers add explosive spring vibes to the point of view. Last but not least, don’t miss to capture the colourful feature between the flowers and the colourful buildings located at the end of the Markt.
