Oscar Bruch Jr. created the concept for a pop-up leisure park at the request of Lord Mayor Thomas Geisel and former trade fair boss Werner M. Dornscheidt. This concept, the first of its kind in Germany, which found numerous imitators, was approved in mid-April and could be implemented on 26 June - taking into account all corona conditions that applied in April. Since April many things have changed with regard to hygiene regulations. Thus, measures of the pilot project are no longer valid today. Thanks to the support of Messe Düsseldorf, the Lord Mayor and the municipal utilities, a visit to DüsselLand is now even more attractive for visitors:
From now on, the admission ticket costs only five euros.
In addition, the amusement park will be extended by one week -
until Sunday, August 2, 2020.
In addition, beer is now also available on tap in the DüsselLand.
