The Rheinpark (meaning: Rhine park) is a 40 hectare (0,4 km²) large urban park along the right bank of the river Rhine in Cologne, Germany. The park lies between the Cologne districts of Deutz and Mülheim and includes a beach club, an open-air theater (the Tanzbrunnen) and a Roman Thermae styled public bath (the Claudius-Therme). It has been voted Germany's best park in 2007.[1]


Originally laid out according to plans by landscape architect Fritz Encke and opened in 1913, the park today mirrors the redesign of the park for the Bundesgartenschau in 1957.

Major public events in the history of the park were:


  • Tanzbrunnen Theater
