Düsseldorf, Steps to the Burgplatz

The steps from the lower promenade to the Burgplatz, also known as "Spanish Steps" after the big one in Rome, has become a popular meeting point in the summer months. A lighting installation has been erected on a group of three masts in 2002. It illuminates the steps with changing colored light. Behind the stairs, the "Schlossturm" (castle tower) is all that is left of the Castle of Düsseldorf which burned down in 1872. The renovated tower is now used by the Schifffahrtmuseum (ship museum).
