This special rafting adventure takes you over the wild waters of the Erft to the Rhine and ends 10 minutes on foot from Düsseldorf's old town. Perfect for family outings, team events and bachelor parties.
We meet directly at the car park "Am Barfußpfad" in Neuss. If you arrive by car, you can park directly there. Our meeting point is also easily accessible by public transport (10 minutes from the stops "Nixhütterweg" and "Gnadenthaler Allee"). After you have received your equipment (lifejacket, helmet and paddle) there will be a training before you go to the water.
The first section takes us from Neuss via the Erft to the Rhine. This section on the water-rich Erft is one of the best places for rafting in North Rhine-Westphalia. Arriving at the Rhine we marvel at the huge inland ships from close up. At a pebble beach in the nature reserve, we take a well-deserved break before we admire the skyline of Düsseldorf from the Rhine and paddle past the old town to the exit point Düsseldorf-Oberkassel.
