Report a mistake!
In this webcam you can see the historical center – city square of Burgplatz, located in the German city of Düsseldorf. As well shown online, Burgplatz is situated on the Rhine River.
In the southern part of the square in the live broadcast provided by Baltic Live Cam there is another no less famous Düsseldorf square – Market Square or Marktplaz, where there is also a webcam.
From May 10, 1995 Burgplatz where the online stream is conducted from, is included in the list of protected historical and architectural monuments.
In the webcam you can also see the castle tower (Schlossturm), and in the background there is the tower of the Saint Lambert’s Basilica (der Basilika St. Lambertus). The Rhein River and the Oberkasseler Brücke Bridge, the longest bridge in Düsseldorf, are easily visible on the left.
It is curious, but the St. Lambert’s Church spire is not straight at all, it is slightly curved. Such a “defect” has been turned into an advantage. Nowadays, this builders’ mistake is a highlight of Düsseldorf architecture. Besides the fact the St. Lambert Basilica, shown online, is the main Catholic Church, it is also the oldest religious building in the city.
The city of Düsseldorf, which city square is shown online by a webcam, is a large political and business center, the capital of the most densely populated German federal state of North Rhine – Westphalia.
