Hotel near Königsallee Dusseldorf

The Hotel Haus am Zoo in Dusseldorf is in an exclusive residential area, a few minutes from the exhibition centre and numerous nearby tourist attractions and close to the famous shopping boulevard Königsallee.

Dusseldorf's internationally best known trademark is the Königsallee ("Kö"). Germany's most sophisticated mile is considered one of the world's grand luxurious boulevards.


Königsallee

The boulevard with its generous stretch of water down the centre was commissioned from the court master builder Huschberger in the place of the existing fortifications, when the area was redeveloped in 1802. It was completed in 1804. The excavation of a moat of 31 m width and 5 m depth required the Düssel to be diverted to provide the nececessary water. Two wooden bridges crossing the moat were provided with toll huts. On the suggestion of the landscape architect Weyhe, trees were planted alongside, and the boulevard was later on named Kastanienallee (Chestnut Avenue).

After the legendary incident when horse manure was thrown at King Friedrich Wilhelm IV. (1848), it was renamed Königsallee (King's Avenue) as a gesture of goodwill.
